Meet Norm Hann
Norm Hann started working as an adventure guide in the Great Bear Rainforest over 20 years ago. His passion for the people and the place grew quickly since then. In 2006 he was given the ultimate coastal honour of being adopted into the Raven Clan, and named T’aam Laan meaning “Steersman of the Canoe.”
In 2010, Norm decided to paddle the proposed Enbridge tanker route on an expedition called Standup4Greatbear, to bring awareness to the threat of these tankers to the coastal First Nations and the pristine ecosystems of the Great Bear. This experience deepened Norm’s passion for promoting education and protection of the Great Bear Rainforest – and also caught the attention of acclaimed filmmaker Anthony Bonello. In 2013, the award-winning documentary film STAND was released, through which Norm’s paddleboarding expedition along the BC coastline is highlighted.
“The Great Bear Rainforest is a spectacular and mesmerizing place. Sharing the beauty and secrets of the temperate rainforest with guests from around the world is an honor for me.”
