The Artist: Yahl ‘Aadas Cori Savard

Although circular designs are common within Haida art, repetitive patterns are not. The challenge for me was to create a pattern using formline that would represent the Haida Nation, without depicting any crests that belong to any one clan—this way, everyone is included. The abalone shell was the clear choice for the inlay as it is traditionally used to adorn Haida art; it also added to the theme of interconnection, by representing our ties to the ocean that surrounds Haida Gwaii.

Haida have lived through thousands of years of changing landscapes. We have been people of the tundra, people of the ice. For over 10,000 years we have been ocean people. No matter our environment, we have always been Haida. This masterful coin pays great respect to our homeland, values and lifeways of yesterday and today. It pays homage to our Elders, children and future generations. It is a precious reminder of our inextricable relationship with, and responsibility to, our home and each other. And, it’s gorgeous!
