Finding Form Line: Haida Manga

November 22, 2014

Haida Manga

Internationally renowned Haida artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas, known for his unique Haida manga style—which combines Northwest Coast form lines with the underpinnings of Asian graphic novels known as “manga” (Japanese) and “manhwa” (Korean)—comes to the Museum! He will guide Museum visitors to record and examine their own personal stories as they explore themes from Yahgulanaas’s stunning full-color graphic novel, RED. Visitors are invited as well to contribute to a dynamic Haida Manga-inspired mural, which will be created on-site in the Hall of Northwest Coast Indians. The event will include a special reading and signing of RED.
