Gidansda’s Moon & Mountain Goat Chest and Chief’s Settee

April 17, 2017 - September 28, 2019


On loan from the American Museum of History, this ancient and very rare chest came home to participate in the inauguration potlatch of Gidansda of the Gakyaals KiiGawaay . The settee was created by Jaalen Edenshaw for Gidansda. In 2019, the Haida Gwaii Museum commissioned Jaalen and Gwaai Edenshaw, Gidandsa’s sons, to recreate the chest, which can currently be viewed in another of our exhibitions, Yahguudangang~To Pay Respect: The Repatriation Journey of the Haida Nation.
