HAIDA MEETS MANGA: A NEW COMMISSION BY MICHAEL NICOLL YAHGULANAAS

Barbara Brotherton / Curator of Native American Art

Far away, past the point of no return, sits Lord's Rock, an indistinct protuberance in an archipelago of windswept islands. It is from this auspicious place of hardship and wonder that Yahgulanaas' large-scale Haidi manga refreshes an ancient Haida tale. Several artistic and cultural influences form this innovative, hybrid style. Using Pop Art, Japanese manga, and Northwest Coast Indigenous formline art, the artist calls for action to save our one small planet.
