Picture then, a beautiful, yet lonely and silent land in the days when the great forests were still intact, when the waters literally teemed with fish, and the skies were sometimes black with myriad migrating birds. Vigorous and an extremely creative people, the Haida inhabit the Galapagos of the North for close to 10 000yrs with an unchallenged knowledge of the surrounding waters, traveling as far south as California and beyond. The art of canoe, houses and totem building. Moieties of Ravens and Eagles, a happy matriarchal lifestyle, the festive Potlatch determines the rules and organizational structures, the values of chieftainship and leadership.

Frog Girl by Paul Owen Lewis
When frogs suddenly vanish from a lake behind a village on the Northwest Coast, a nearby volcano awakens and an Indian girl is called to a dangerous adventure. Summoned to a spectacular world beneath the lake, the girl is questioned by "Grandmother" about the disappearance of her "children". Just who is this mysterious old woman? And what will happen if her children are not returned? What follows both answers-and deepens the mystery. Careful attention is paid to historical detail both in the story and the vibrant illustrations. Frog Girl follows the rich mythic traditions of the Haida, Tlingit, and other Native peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast, whose stories often tell of individuals cast mysteriously into parallel worlds inhabited by animals in human form.
A portion of the proceeds from this book is donated to the Haida Gwaii Rediscovery Program for tribal youth.
