Indigenous cultural exhibits at modern museums are innovative and immersive. Sit in a storytelling chair and sink into sound recordings made by living speakers of ancient Indigenous languages. Step into an oceanfront longhouse and see the regalia of chiefs and shamans. The best Indigenous cultural displays are authentic and respectful. They are created with, owned by, and reflective of the values and designs of the Indigenous people they belong to.

Through the Haida Heritage Centre at Kay Llnagaay we celebrate the living culture of the Haida. Through our language, art and stories we share our relationship with the land and sea that which shapes, nourishes and sustains us. Kay Llnagaay protects and fosters Haida culture by reaffirming our traditions and beliefs, encouraging artistic expression, and serving as a keeper of all that we are. Kay Llnagaay is a place for the Haida voice to be heard. The Haida Gwaii Museum opened in 1976 and continues to build an international reputation for showcasing Haida historical and contemporary art, All-Island artists and an outstanding collection of objects, artifacts and scientific material culture. The Museum is committed to encouraging and facilitating creative dialogue and exploring a more holistic and critical view of the multiple and diverse ways of understanding Haida Gwaii — home to one of the most prominent Northwest Coast First Nations cultures (Haida), and rich ecosystems in Canada.
