Interview with Dana Moraes and Graham Richard
"I thought it would be a really good experience learning how to speak X̱aaydaa Kil [Haida] and I thought it would be fun"
"It's so culturally involved and an inspiration for other Nations to do it."
"I think most people here would probably watch it by private showings."
"Elders came and spoke with us and taught us how to speak it properly […] I mostly read it and spoke it. I would just keep on repeating it in my head and out loud until I could remember the line. Then I’ll tell it to an elder, and if I had something that I wasn’t saying correctly they would correct me and I would keep on practicing.”
"I want to become a Haida artist, mostly weaving."
