Heredity: Hereditary Chiefs of the Haida



Scope note(s)

  • April 28, 1998 - February 21, 1999
  • This exhibit comprises eleven photo-based artworks depicting contemporary Haida hereditary chiefs. Accompanied by voice and text layering, this series by artist Todd Tyarm explores the idea of heredity as a virtual link between present and past, as well as to the future. The chiefs depicted in this exhibit are individuals who represent a crucial conduit for their communities to regain the traditional values, practices, languages, and ways of thinking that have shaped their cultural identities from the beginning. The “Heredity” exhibit offers insight into both the heritage of the Haida, and the thoughts, names, and stories of the people who represent its living legacy.
