This documentary follows Haida artist Bill Reid, from British Columbia. A jeweller and wood carver, he works on a traditional Haida totem pole. We watch the gradual transformation of a bare cedar trunk into a richly carved pole to stand on the shores of the town of Skidegate, in the Queen Charlotte Islands of B.C.

    I am trilled to find this video at NFB. It was made in 1979, some 30 years ago! The footage is invaluable and real. I truly appreciate that this beautiful film is available online. I started learning about Canadian West Coast Native Art about ten years ago. My interest has been increasing and I want to share my passion with the online community. During the Olympics in Vancouver, I created two videos explaining West Coast Native Art and Culture. You video is a great inspiration for me. I am hoping that my efforts will make a small contribution to the native art community. I would like to complaint Jack Long for his excellent documentary about Bill Reid.
