In June 2012, Norn Hann paddled 350kms along the east coast of Haida Gwaii. Over 8 days of continuous paddling, Norm and the STAND crew visited the 5 Haida Watchmen sites and spent time learning about the Haida culture and their fears for the Enbridge pipeline and tanker route. The expedition was part of the STAND where the crew documented the landscape and wildlife of the region and the peoples connection to it. The expedition was made possible in part by the support of Quiksilver Waterman and the Quiksilver Foundation.
