Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas (born 1954) is a visual artist, and creator of Haida Manga. His wide-ranging artistic practice explores themes of identity, environmentalism and the human condition. Influenced by both the tradition of Haida iconography and contemporary Asian visual culture, he has created an artistic practice that crosses diverse cultures, generations, and disciplines.
