I have been privileged to visit this land and to meet some of the people who were created for and by this Spirit. If everyone had had my good fortune their would be no talk of running supertankers filled with black death through this territory.
For 10,000 years or more the land and the people have been One. Neither you nor I can ever be ‘Haida’ just as they can never be you or me. But as a man who understands these things has taught me, we are all brothers and sisters. This means we can, we must, stand with our relatives who live in Haida Gwaii as they fight against those who would destroy their land and their lives for simple greed.
