Shot on British Columbia's rugged north coast, this second series of Ravens and Eagles: Haida Art continues its exploration into the roots of traditional Haida art, all from the inside perspective of a member of the Haida community, writer, producer and director Marianne Jones. The series includes two longer works, 46 minutes each (combined episodes)- one that celebrates the genius of Charles Edenshaw, the most prolific Haida artist to have ever lived, and another on the historic blockade of logging on Lyell Island by Haida elders that resulted in the establishment of the Gwaii Haanas Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site in 1987. Repatriation is explored in two separate episodes and the final episode seeks to further define Haida art in form, process and in its connection to spirituality, land and culture.
