WHAT WE DO

Haida Roots is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to preserving the endangered Haida language. Our mission is to connect community members living in the Seattle area to the Haida culture and language through programs and opportunities created by Haida Roots. Along with keeping our ancient cultural ways alive, we will support the creative evolution of new Indigenous music, art and books.
Haida Roots supports cultural groups that have the same mission of Preserving Endangered Indigenous Language.

FLUENT SPEAKER MENTOR PROGRAM

We can count our fluent speakers on one hand. Because of this, we are constantly working towards finding ways to stay connected to our precious elders and learn from them. We keep this goal in mind: 2nd language learners will speak our ancient tongue & will nurture new generations of 1st language Haida speakers.
