For centuries the Haida lived on the Queen Charlotte Islands, a remote archipelago off the Northwest Coast of North America.

By the time the first Europeans landed on the shores of their homeland, Haida art had attained a refined and noble sophistication of style to display complex myths of creation and transformation.
Haida monumental art : villages of the Queen Charlotte Islands by George F MacDonald ( Book )
18 editions published between 1983 and 2002 in English and held by 521 libraries worldwide
"The Haida of the Queen Charlotte Islands in British Columbia constructed some of the most magnificent houses and erected some of the most beautifully carved totem poles on the Northwest Coast. During the last quarter of the nineteenth century, images of the Haida's immense cedar houses and soaring totem poles were captured, first on glass plates and later on film, by photographers who travelled to then-remote villages such as Masset and Skidegate to marvel at, and record, what they saw there." "Haida Monumental Art ... includes a large number of these remarkable photographs, selected from a collection of over 10,000 original prints and photographic plates. They depict the Haida villages at the height of their glory and record their tragic deterioration only a few decades later. ... By combining archaeology and ethnohistory, George MacDonald presents an integrated framework for understanding the physical structure of a Haida village. He explains how the houses and poles are part of a fascinating web of myth, family history, and Haida cosmology, which provides a unique insight into Haida culture."--Back cover.
