About this book

Haida Gwaii is the traditional name for that beautiful group of islands, sometimes called the Queen Charlottes, off the northern mainland coast of British Columbia. For thousands of years these islands have been the home of the Haida. Plants of Haida Gwaii, written with the cooperation and collaboration of the Haida, is a detailed and insightful record of the uses and importance to the Haida of over 150 species of native plants. Moreover, it explains the knowledge and understanding that enabled the Haida to use the resources of their islands, sustainably from one generation to the next for thousands of years.
