Introduction

Plants and the knowledge of them are a vital part of our culture, our language and our way of life. This knowledge is part of the plants themselves, and of the lands and waters in which they grow. The knowledge, the people, the culture, the language, the plants, animals, the land, bogs and lakes, and the ocean are all pieces of the whole of Haida Gwaii. All are intertwined and woven together.

This Learning Collection is based on the Virtual Museum of Canada exhibit, Our World – Our Way of Life. The Inuit and Haida people have ancient and rich cultures, history and heritage which are shared on the Our World - Our Way of Life website. Exhibits from the Haida Nation of Haida Gwaii and the Inuit of Nunavut include carvings, war canoes, oral histories and ancient stories. Learn about the original occupants of the Queen Charlotte Islands and Canada’s Arctic regions by visiting the distinct Haida, Innu and Inuit cultures featured on the ’Our World - Our Way of Life’ website.
