2000 with the goal of educating Haida people and the general public about, and in the rich
musical traditions of the Haida. The Society also seeks to reinvigorate Haida songs and protocol, perpetuating the continued use and existence of traditional and contemporary songs. They are committed to the prudent use of all resources contributed to the Society to safeguard and enrich this unique cultural legacy. Today, as in the past, Haida culture, songs and ceremonies continue to transform and evolve so that they can remain relevant to Haida people. The Haida Gwaii Singers Society celebrates and sustains the Songs of Haida Gwaii for this and future generations.
