Haida Animations

< Back to Media page.

The Haidawood Animations resulted from a collaboration between K’aalts’idaa K’ah Haida Storytelling Society and Dr. Kenneth Raj Leslie.  They combine social commentary and activism with Haida language and cultural expression in an entirely new form, Haida Stop Motion animation.  With meticulous sets built from cardboard, figurines, red cedar, avocado pits and feathers, these works involved broad community participation including Haida elders like Ts’ini Stephen Brown.
