Northern Savings’ Queen Charlotte branch is excited to share a captivating newly displayed piece of art with its members.
The branch recently commissioned a cedar panel created by local Haida artist, Michael Moody.

Michael Moody is an emerging Haida artist from Haida Gwaii and the son of Master Haida carver, Garner Moody. Michael spent many months in 2020 working on this unique piece specifically created for the Credit Union. The panel depicts the “Treasure Bringer at the Money House” or in Haida, the “Gunakadeit of Daall Naay”.

In regards to the piece, Northern Savings’ Queen Charlotte Branch Manager, Vaughan New stated, “The Gunakadeit of Daall Naay embodies the deeply rooted relationship between Northern Savings and the Haida Gwaii community. I am so very proud to have such a stunning quality, locally-crafted piece of art displayed in our location.”
