100% Cotton Masks with Haida Gwaii Watchmen Logo
The Haida Gwaii Watchmen began in 1981. The Skidegate Band Council had become increasingly concerned as Haida Gwaii became an attractive destination for boaters, kayakers and tourists. In an attempt to protect their cultural artifacts and resources, the Haida Watchmen Program was formed. Every spring through the early fall these guardians are dispatched to Windy Bay (Hlk’yah GaawGa), Hotspring Island (Gandll K’in Gwaay-aay) and Anthony Island (SGang Gwaay Llnagaay). Tanu (T’aanuu Llnagaay) and Skedans (K’uuna Llnagaay) to guard and protect the natural and cultural heritage of these sites.
