Description

In partnership with DOXA Documentary Film Festival, the Museum of Vancouver presents White Ravens: A Legacy of Resistance.

“Do we have to wait for the older generations to die off before we have any justice? I have more hope than that.”—GEOFF GREENE (HAIDA ARTIST)

How do you resist cultural assimilation and maintain a sense of history and tradition in the face of recurring aggression? White Ravens is a critically important lesson about how a people can stand together and fight back with power and dignity. Shot entirely on the remote islands of Haida Gwaii, Georg Koszulinski’s film is a touching portrait of the Haida People. The men and women featured in the film—William, Geoff, Raven, Erika, Ralph, Lisa, Vern, and a poet named Towustasin Stocker—share their stories of pain, anger, and trauma. But it is their resilience, respect for tradition, and deep love for the natural world that most endures.

White Ravens takes us on a remarkable journey to a place of astonishing beauty, but the film maintains its focus on the people who call this extraordinary place home. Their dedication and deep ties to the land give them the strength to fight a Herculean battle. The film shows that the fight is not over for the Haida people, nor for other Indigenous people all over the world. -ML
