Comments: Totem Hall, the central exhibit in the First Peoples gallery, features monumental carvings from Kwakwaka'wakw, Heiltsuk, Nuxalk, Gitxsan, Haida and Nuu-chah-nulth communities. Here are crest poles and house posts from Gwa'yasdams on Gilford Island, 'Qlc (Old Bella Bella) on Campbell Island, Tallheo (Talio) on South Bentinck Arm, Xwamdasbe' (Nahwitti) on Hope Island, Gitanyow on the Skeena River, hlragilda 'llnagaay (Skidegate) and t'anuu 'llnagaay (Tanu) on Haida Gwaii and Numnuquamis on the Sarita River in Barkley Sound. The juxtaposition of these magnificent carvings emphasizes the variety of different pole types and carving styles, and evokes the grandeur of 19th-century coastal villages. GTPhoto is a brilliant knowledge/photo agency with all award winning photographers, authors, filmmakers, scientists & guides covering our world - PNW coastal native culture an absolute specialty.
