Filmmaker’s statement

I have been researching and spending time with elders to learn more about my heritage and the culture and history of other Canadian First Nations peoples. I am using these animations to share what I’ve learned in an educational and entertaining format.

Raven, a central character in First Nations folklore, is a fun and mischievous character who has been delightful to work with in this series of stories.

    I am Haida of the West Coast. I am always looking for short films of the Haida’s legends. I just showed this one to my granddaughter. We loved it! Thank you so very much!
