Rate this:
Perhaps the most prolific Haida artist to have ever lived, Charles Edenshaw played an enormous role in preserving his people's ancient art forms at a time when their very survival was in question. He endured the enormous challenges of his era, the onslaught of disease, the growing influence of Christianity, and the prohibition of the potlatch by the Canadian government to become a great innovator in Haida art. In this documentary, his descendants Robert Davidson, Carmen Goertzen and Christian White, celebrated artists in their own right, discuss his legacy as Haida elders have passed it down to them. Art historians from UBC's Museum of Anthropology and Seattle's Burke Museum add insights culled from their research.
