Base Of Another Totem Pole
I don't have a more complete photo of this pole (unfortunately). The three figures in view are Ha'ma'a, Raven and a Sea Monster. The carver is unknown, but it was carved as a memorial for Wa'otsa'as - wife of Sam Charlie.

Ki'i

These two little guardians are cute - but I'm sure they are a serious warning.

Rock with Petroglyphs

This rock has petroglyphs carved into it.  These petroglyphs were apparently carved
at the same time Alexander MacKenzie carved his name in the rocks.

Jonathan Hunt's Totem
The totem on the right is written up in Hillary Stewart's book - The pole was carved by Tony Hunt (Jonathan's grandson) with Calvin Hunt, John Livingston and Peter Knox in 1976.

The top figure is Kolus followed by Cedar Man holding a copper, beneath is Sun in Human form, also holding a copper. The bottom is the killer whale, head turned downward. Jonathan Hunt was a good friend of Mungo Martin and his son.

The pole on the left (Eagle, Whale with a man on its back, Sea Otter/Bear? with a copper in its mouth, Bullhead/Cod/Sculpin?, Man) was carved in the early 1940's.
