Ways of Knowing through the art of Iljuwas Bill Reid
Iljuwas Bill Reid (1920–1998) is one of the most significant Northwest Coast art figures from the second half of the twentieth century, remembered as a skilled jeweller, a master carver, and a passionate advocate for Haida ways of seeing, making, and knowing. This Teacher Resource Guide focuses on the theme “Ways of Knowing” through three thematic activities exploring different forms of knowledge transfer that were central to Reid’s life and work: learning through objects and tools; learning through making; and learning through land and community.
- The Knowledge of Ancestors: Learning Through Objects and Tools
- The Knowledge of Elders: Learning Through Making
- The Knowledge of Place: Learning Through Land and Community
