Celebration of the Raven film soundtrack, opening reception speeches

Item is an audio recording of introductory speeches given during the opening reception of Celebration of the Raven. The recording is Reel #7 of the soundtrack for the film Celebration of the Raven, directed by Ken Kuramoto, which documented the work process and installation of Bill Reid’s carving titled The Raven and the First Men and its unveiling by the Prince of Wales in 1980. The recording begins with an unidentified speaker who acknowledges the two groups who co-hosted the event: the Haida of the Queen Charlotte Islands including the Chiefs, Chief Elders and the People as well as the Friends of the Museum of Anthropology, Corporate Friends and the Raven Committee. The recording is then interrupted. The following portion of the recording features a woman speaking, likely in Haida. The recording is interrupted several more times during various speeches so it is difficult to identify speakers. Lastly, Haida artist Bill Reid provides a tribute to the passing of Haida storyteller Solomon Wilson and then thanks various individuals involved in the creation of the sculpture including Walter Koerner and artists George Norris, Garry Edenshaw, Charles Edenshaw and others. The recording concludes with singing and drumming.
