  • "The Haida Gwaii Semester provides an amazing opportunity to engage in challenging cross-cultural and inter-disciplinary dialogues. I was left with an in-depth understanding of Haida law, governance, history, and contemporary land management strategies. I continue to apply what I have learned at the Haida Gwaii Semester within the context of my community, the Saulteau First Nations in Treaty 8 territory. Most importantly the semester enabled me to build meaningful relationships with some of the most incredible and inspiring people I have ever met!"

  • “Among many pieces of strong content, the biggest value was the local connections with Haida leaders and community members; their honesty and openness with us - their stories were grounding and let us get a glimpse at what the future might be.”
