Yaalth-Tluu, Raven Canoe, was made in 1990 by Haida carver, Reg Davidson, of Old Massett. The 30 foot canoe was commissioned by a private arts organization in San Francisco as part of a six month public demonstration of traditional Haida arts in San Francisco. After the project, Yaalth-Tluu returned to Haida Gwaii, where it is now used for ceremonial occasions and special events.
