yahguudang Seafood With Respect
There was a time, not long ago, when humans were intimately connected to the land, ocean and all living things. In the mythical islands of Haida Gwaii, the profound interdependence between the forest, the sea and their shared inhabitants is forever and strongly tied.
Amidst this isolated, wild and rainy place are miles of pristine rugged shorelines, vast expanses of sandy beaches, and ocean stretching as far as the eye can see.
The wild abundance of the sea has sustained the Haida people for thousands of years and provided a source for food, ceremony and spiritual sustenance. The fisheries around Haida Gwaii not only provide an important link to the cultural heritage of islands, but also a sustainable future for our islands communities.
We want to help guide others back to the ways of nature: living more connected lives, eating cleanly and sustainably, and knowing the origin of one’s food. This is why we produce seafood that incorporates Yahguudang, the Haida concept of respect for the land, sea, air and all living things.
