About the Haida

The Haida Nation is one of the First Nations that live in western Canada (just south of Alaska) and are represented in the Hall of Northwest Coast Indians. In and around the hall you will see dozens of cultural treasures that were made by the Haida people, from colorful masks, to detailed sculptures, to ceremonial clothing. We worked with artists from this community to develop the stories and drawings that are in the app and on the coloring sheets.

What’s augmented reality?

Augmented reality let's you use your phone’s camera to
view the world around you plus… something more. With
Dreams of the Haida Child you will be able to view and
interact with 3D versions of the objects from the coloring
sheets as if they shared the room with you. In addition,
you will view beautiful watercolor paintings dramatizing the
sheet’s story. And, best of all, both will use the art you
created on the coloring sheet, allowing you to collaborate
with contemporary Haida artists to bring this experience
to life.
