Twenty original stories from northern Haida Gwaii were recorded, transcribed and digitally preserved for the Masset Haida Heritage and Repatriation Society, in 2005. Five of these recordings were dramatized and aired on CBC Radio Ideas in fall 2006. The CD is available for purchase at CBC Shop Online. The legend Raven Creation Story was incorporated into the Vancouver Art Gallery's 2006 Raven Traveling Haida Art Exhibit. The CD has aided other language projects in the community.
