Bella Bella (beautiful beautiful) it can’t be right but it is.
Carver George Johnson of the Wuikinuxv Nation has been working on the totem pole you see here for 1.5 years, it isn't quite done yet.
Carved from yellow cedar the feathers that make up the wings of the eagle have had their design burned into them each intricately and individually.
The Eagle sits at the top because from the above, the raptor is the first to notice the salmon's return to River's Inlet in the fall.
The Wuikinuxv Nation has lived on the Central Coast of British Columbia for thousands of years. Filled with grizzly bears, waterfalls and towering mountains, their territory is extremely beautiful.
Pictured here is their community big house. The Wuikinuxv people built the House of Nuakawa, in 2005. The reconstruction of the house has been a huge source of strength and pride, and has lead to a revival in the Potlatch culture. A Potlatch as described by The website from the U'mista Cultural Centre in Alert Bay is; "a ceremony where families gather and names are given, births are announced, marriages are conducted, and where families mourn the loss of a loved one. The potlatch is also the ceremony where a chief will pass on his rights and privileges to his eldest son." It is a fundamental part of many First Nations cultures on the coast of BC. . The original decline of the Potlatch was a result of the potlatch ban which was legislation forbidding the practice of the potlatch passed by the government of the Dominion of Canada, which began in 1885 and lasted until 1951. Many were still held in secret during this time. .

Every skeleton has a story.
The one you see here is a sea otter that died most likely of tooth decay off of Calvert Island. It was reconstructed by Mike deRoos and now hangs at the Hakai Institute diving for its favourite food - a giant Red Sea urchin.
