Today, we’re sharing the news that The Skidegate Band Council, in partnership with W Dusk Energy and VoVo Productions, is pleased to announce the launch of the film “The Sun on Top of the House” or Jiigawaay Naay Unguu. The film, directed by award-winning filmmaker Farhan Umedaly, is the story of building the largest community-owned solar project in British Columbia. “The outfitting of solar panels on Kay Llnagaay, The Haida Cultural Centre perfectly embodies the fusion of ancient tradition with state-of-the-art renewable technology,” says Farhan Umedaly, the film’s director. “It also exemplifies that the Haida are in charge of their destiny and are taking direct measures to move away from fossil fuels imposed on them through colonization.”
