Henry Young is known as one of the last traditionally trained Haida historians from Skidegate, a Haida community in Haida Gwaii, British Columbia. The Haida Gwaii Museum at Qay'llnagaay’s Oral History Collection fonds includes recorded interviews with Henry Young and Ernie Wilson, a Haida chief (https://www.memorybc.ca/haida-gwaii-museum-at-qayllnagaay-oral-history-collection) . A recording made by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1956 of Susan Williams, Henry Young and Mary Davison singing is also held at the Royal BC Museum Archives (http://search-bcarchives.royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/haida-indian-songs-1956). Also refer to Haida Gwaii : human history and environment from the time of loon to the time of the iron people (2005, UBC Press) edited by Daryl W. Fedje and Rolf W. Mathewes, specifically Chapter 8, which includes a section on Henry Young and his son James Young. The book is available in the Museum of Anthropology Reading Room, call number 12.7c HAI FED 2005. Many of Henry Young’s Haida stories were the inspiration for Bill Reid’s artwork. Bill Reid dedicated his book, The Raven Steals the Light (1984), to Young, the man who first told him about the myths (http://theravenscall.ca/en/who/life_story/print).
