Everything Depends on Everything Else

In Haida it is said,"Ginn 7waadluwaan gud7ahl Kwaagiidang"-- everything depends on everything else.

Large portions of the islands have been saved from industrial logging in the last ten years. Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site protects the southern third of the archipelago. In 1987, the Haida were successful in bringing logging to an end in this area and it is now set aside to be preserved in its natural state. Duu gusd Haida Tribal Park is another area in the northwestern quadrant of the islands designated for preservation by the Haida Nation.
