“In Our Blood” Ravens and Eagles -Series 2 Episode 3
Geoff Green, Tony Green and Eric Olson are brothers who share a passion for art. Geoff is a student of design and would one day like to teach. Tony carves both wood and metal and paints, but his specialty is pencil drawing. Eric, the youngest, was motivated by his brothers and only recently began to carve. The three lived away from Haida Gwaii throughout their childhood but their mother Roberta Olsen, determined to preserve their cultural roots, raised them in Haida ways. They discuss their connection to their own work and the inspiration they receive from their culture, their traditional home and one another.
Shot on British Columbia's rugged north coast, this second series of Ravens and Eagles: Haida Art continues its exploration into the roots of traditional Haida art, all from the inside perspective of a member of the Haida community, writer, producer and director Marianne Jones.
