Haida Stories – Walker Talks!

haidagwaiibc4The indigenous people of the Haida Gwaii, an archipelago of islands off the coast of what is now British Columbia, date back 17,000 years and to this day retain a rich vein of stories — mythopoeic gems, as Walker Brents III would have it.

This Sunday afternoon, Walker will tell a few of their stories, and will go into some of the implications and associations they provoke.

walker brentsWalker is a fascinating storyteller, a unique and original thinker — one of the truly talented people we at Bird & Beckett are proud to be able to present on a regular basis. ¬†He gives a talk here on the last Sunday of each month, except in the summer when he and his wife traverse a territory that ranges from the Pacific Northwest to the llano estacado of west Texas. ¬†Walker and his talks are well worth an hour of your time on a Sunday afternoon.
