Five Essential Haida Phrases
On Haida Gwaii there are two distinct dialects of Haida, the Northern, or Masset (xaad kil) and the Southern, or Skidegate (HlGaagilda Xaayda Kil). A great deal of work towards preserving the Haida language has been accomplished by the Skidegate Haida Immersion Program, (SHIP) to whom we are grateful for sharing these words with the Indigenous languages resource FirstVoices.
