Kwakwaka Heraldic Pole
Kwakwaka Heraldic Pole,
Mimkwamlis (Village Island), British Columbia 1988

In 1988, the Heraldic pole in this photograph stood at the naturally decaying, and apparently abandoned Mamalilaculla homesite - but actually it is a place of historic, and ongoing significance to the Kwakwaka’wakw. The decaying village is located on Mimkwamlis (Village Island) along Canada's Inside Passage.
