The 2016 Re-Encounter expedition in Haida Gwai- which set out in search of an undocumented totem pole-took an unexpected turn when the object of this Quest was ‘ReEncountered’ almost immediately, on the first day of the journey.

What now? The real treasure, the group discovered, was not so much this long lost artifact-the elusive Killer Whale/Thunderbird Memorial pole- but a living culture and an indomitable, independent, creative spirit.  The ‘Watchman’, in particular, inspired a rethinking of the team’s experience in this place, and a reassessment of the role of artists everywhere-the eyes of our society. Short film followed by discussion.
