Wooden mask from the Haida, the Queen Charlotte Islands, Canada. This mask is of a woman. The drawings on the sides have different expressions, indicating that these represent different spirits.
Among the Haida, masks were mainly worn by members of secret societies. For the dances of these societies, masks served to represent the wild spirits of the forest, named Gagiid by the Haida.
These masks were worn in potlatch shows, to represent the spiritual beings (geni loci) encountered by their ancestors. These traditions still currently remain alive.
