Haida monumental art : villages of the Queen Charlotte Islands by George F MacDonald( Book )

6 editions published between 1983 and 1995 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Haida of the Queen Charlotte Islands in British Columbia constructed some of the most magnificent houses and erected some of the most beautifully carved totem poles on the Northwest Coast. During the last quarter of the nineteenth century, images of the Haida's immense cedar houses and soaring totem poles were captured, first on glass plates and later on film, by photographers who travelled to then-remote villages such as Masset and Skidegate to marvel at, and record, what they saw there." "Haida Monumental Art, initially published as a limited edition hardcover and finally available in paperback, includes a large number of these remarkable photographs, selected from a collection of over 10,000 original prints and photographic plates. They depict the Haida villages at the height of their glory and record their tragic deterioration only a few decades later. As well, this edition contains the complete text from the first edition, including site plans and detailed descriptions of fifteen major villages and several smaller sites, which are catalogued by house and pole." "By combining archaeology and ethnohistory, George MacDonald presents an integrated framework for understanding the physical structure of a Haida village. He explains how the houses and poles are part of a fascinating web of myth, family history, and Haida cosmology, which provides a unique insight into Haida culture."--Jacket
Lousy Little Sixpence by Alec Morgan( Visual )

3 editions published between 1983 and 1990 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Australia in 1909, in the New South Wales, the Aborigines Protection Board planned to break up Aboriginal communities by forcibly removing children and hiring them out as servants to white employers. The title of this powerful documentary comes from the wages that were to be paid to the children. Many never saw that "lousy little sixpence". In the mid-1930s, the Aboriginal people began to organise and to fight the Aborigines Protection Board. Through old newsreels, archive film, photographs and interviews with the Elders, the film weaves a moving account of their lives and their struggle

Corbeau vole la lumière by Bill Reid( Book )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in French and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Avant qu'il y ait quoi que ce soit au monde, avant que les eaux recouvrent tout puis se retirent, avant qu'il y ait sur la terre des animaux, dans l'air des oiseaux, dans la mer des poissons, des baleines et des phoques, il y avait un vieil homme qui vivait dans une maison, au bord d'une rivière, avec son unique enfant, une fille. Qu'elle soit belle comme les branches du sapin ciguë sur un ciel de printemps au lever du soleil ou laide comme une limace de mer est à vrai dire de peu d'importance dans cette histoire qui se passe à peu près complètement dans l'obscurité. C'est toute la richesse de la mythologie haïda qui éclate dans l'œuvre Corbeau vole la lumière. À travers les mésaventures cocasses mais néanmoins profondes de Corbeau le filou, on découvre des récits à la fois poignants et pittoresques, dans un monde où les animaux parlent, où les rêves deviennent réalité, où les monstres et les hommes vivent côte à côte. Au-delà d'un échantillonnage de violence, de roublardise et de vindicte, c'est tout un monde où règnent l'amour et la communication entre les espèces qui se révèle à nous

The story of the sculpture and of its creator, Bill Reid, is engagingly related by Robin Laurence. And Bill Reid's own descriptions of the creatures in the canoe provide glimpses into the mythic complexity and power of "The Spirit of Haida Gwaii."--Pub. desc
