This Women’s Day, the Haida Nation would like to honour the supernatural mothers of our Nation – Jiila Kuns, SG̲uuluu Jaad and K̲alga Jaad, who were on Haida Gwaii tens of thousands of years ago. Hundreds of clans descended from these three women. The resilience of the supernatural mothers ushered our families through time establishing the Haida Nation on these shining Islands. We owe everything to the strength of our ancestors.
The power of our supernatural mothers shows in the women who uphold our nation today and in the work of those who have led us in the past. Haawa — Haaw’a
