Canoe Kids Volume 2 Haida is the second issue of the publication designed as a family book for kids all ages. The mandate for the full-colour book is Exploring Indigenous Cultures through Authentic Indigenous Voices. This second issue focuses on the Haida Nation of Haida Gwaii. In 165 pages the reader is introduced to the Haida people who kindly assisted the Canoe Kids staff by allowing access to Haida territory. Canoe Kids acknowledges the generosity of the Council of Haida Nation, the Haida Museum and the Haida Heritage Centre. The articles included in the Haida issue celebrate the oceans, the soundscape, harvesting, history and culture, totem poles, canoes, longhouses, food and recipes, transportation, the Haida Gwaii Watchmen Program, the bent box, repatriating the name for the territory, the Peace Potlatch, the language, totem pole raising, archaeological sites, the Inside Passage, and book reviews. Throughout the text the editor has included colourful photographs of the geography, people, and animals living in Haida Gwaii. Guest editors included Glen Woolner, Captain Gold, Vern Williams, Christian White, and Candace Weir. Canoe Kids stresses the importance of traditional knowledge and the importance of the environment for all of Mother Earth's children and the Haida issue acknowledges this connection in keeping Turtle Island vibrant and thriving for all the faces yet to come. Highly recommended.
