Yahguudang.gang: To Pay Respect

Jisgang Nika Collison and Lucy Bell

By nature, museums reflect the social climate they exist within. Responsible museums bring attention to historic and current paradigms, all the while looking to the future. Effective museums not only have people paying attention, they inspire those people to engage in pursuing and enacting healthy public and political discourse. While not a lifeway known by our Ancestors, today museums are part of Haida culture: a dedication to those that came before us, to our children, to our future, to Haida Gwaii and to the World. In this, we have not only “Haida-ized” our own museum practices we have interrupted those of mainstream institutions, and are working together with them to repair of our shared history and redirect common rhetoric; essentially bringing two worlds together to creating a new one.

Jisgang Nika Collison belongs to the Ḵaay'ahl Laanas of the Haida Nation. She is executive director and curator of the Haida Gwaii Museum at Ḵay Llnagaay and has worked in the field of Haida language arts and culture for more than 20 years. Deeply committed to reconciliation, Nika is a senior repatriation negotiator for her Nation, pursuing reparation and relationships with mainstream museums on a global scale. She consults, publishes and lectures internationally. Nika serves as a member of the CMA Reconciliation Council, Bank of Canada Indigenous Advisory Circle, Royal British Columbia Museum’s board of directors and the UBC MOA Directors Advisory Council. She is a recipient of the Michael M. Ames Award for Innovative Museum Anthropology from the Council for Museums Anthropology for her work in repatriation and Indigenous scholarship and was named one of the top 10 Cultural Professionals for 2017 by the BC Museums Association. Nika is a life-long Nation-based scholar of all things Haida.

Lucy Bell, also known as Sdahl K’awaas is a passionate Indigenous museologist from Haida Gwaii, BC. With Jisgang and Sdahl K’awaas at the helm, the Haida have repatriated over 500 ancestral remains, many language resources and some of the 12,000 belongings held in global museums. Lucy received a BC Community Achievement Award for her work in repatriation. She has also co-curated and coordinated a number of international Haida exhibits and museum collaborations. Lucy was the inaugural Head of the Indigenous Collections and Repatriation Department at the Royal BC Museum. She and Jisgang are co-authors of the “Indigenous Repatriation Handbook”. In her farewell speech, she graciously called out the museum for racism, launching an investigation and internal museum work to decolonize and create an anti-racist environment. Lucy is the recipient of the Sterling Prize for Controversy for calling out the provincial museum and demanding museums to decolonize and be anti-racist. Lucy is passionate about learning in the Haida world and the academic world. She is a learner and advocate for the Haida language. She is a distinguished University of Victoria Alumna for her Master’s in language revitalization and her certificate in Cultural Resource Management. She is currently a PhD Candidate focusing on Haida museology at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia.
