New Member Night April 7: Haida

Posted 4/1/2011 12:04 AM by Administrator | Comments

On April 7th from 6 - 9 PM, the museum will be hosting a free event for new members. It is a wonderful opportunity to get a look at collections and projects that are happening behind-the-scenes. From the Department of Anthropology store-rooms, we will be bringing out several items, all of which were made by Haida artists. Come take a look at argillite and horn carvings, bentwood boxes, and a 100 year old eulachon fish oil container that still smells like it was being used yesterday. You will learn a little about Haida culture, the islands called Haida Gwaii, and perhaps be inspired to find the Northwest Coast cultures exhibit in the North American Indian Cultures exhibit hall. For more information on the New Member Night event, please go to /join/memberships/member-events/new-member-night. We hope to see you then!
