cedar bough 2 more green colors“In the Haida worldview, the cedar tree is known as “every woman’s sister”, providing for and sustaining our existence. This ancient sister lies at the root of Haida culture. She permeates every facet of Haida life, beginning in the cradle and continuing to the grave and finally, ending at the memorial potlatch and raising of the memorial totem poles to commemorate and celebrate one’s life and contributions to the community.”
