Ernest Swanson

Ernest Swanso (Haida) is an Indigenous artist.

“Our culture; our heritage is born of our respectful, intimate ties with the earth and the sea. Like a forest, the roots of our people are entwined, and adversity will not cut us down. We owe our existence to Haida Gwaii. It is here on these islands, where our ancestors lived and died, that we shall live until such time as they send us the sign to join them in the next world. The generation of those living today assumes the responsibility of passing down our heritage to the generations that follow.

I was raised on Haida Gwaii and deeply appreciate the traditional teachings from my grandmother.” -Ernest Swanson
