Instructors

While HGI instructors come from a variety of backgrounds and areas of interest, they all share a connection to Haida Gwaii. Our instructors, both Indigenous Peoples and non-Indigenous Canadians, come from Haida Gwaii and across Canada. This diversity enriches student learning and provides broad perspectives on complex issues.
