Haida Gwaii House
ENDED FEB 28, 2010: Located at the ground level of the Hampton Inn is a mini Haida Gwaii. This venue will feature a special longhouse and will showcase Haida art and culture, wilderness, Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, marine animals, shore birds and much more. The Haida Gwaii House will be open from February 11th to the 28th from 12 noon to 9 pm. Ambassadors will be available onsite to answer questions and talk about the place they live. Also on display will be a Haida mask carved by Regg Davidson, an 11 foot totem pole designed by Tim Boyko, and a number of scrolling images. If you're lucky, you may just see Haida in their own regalia. Or you may bump into Christian White, a Haida artist who will be at work carving on site.
Their new website is located at www.GoHaidaGwaii.ca. There will also be free contest prizes given away daily at the venue. Haida Gwaii House is really close to BC Place Stadium, home of the opening and closing ceremonies. If you want directions on how to get there, click here.
