Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson

Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson is a Haida multi-award winning musician, an artist, and lawyer, well known for her work in Aboriginal-environmental law and as a keeper of traditions. She is the author of Out of Concealment: Female Supernatural Beings of Haida Gwaii. Born and raised in Haida Gwaii, Terri-Lynn has dedicated herself to the continuation of Haida culture. The traditional Haida songs her great-grandmother sang have motivated her to help preserve a legacy of Haida music through the Haida Gwaii Singers Society. Deep on the front lines of Indigenous Rights, she strives to open new vistas to her audiences rooted in Indigenous world views, Haida language and laws, music and oral traditions, and branches out to explore their relevance to contemporary society.
