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.

Standing Totem
This totem was once fallen, but has been proped up again. It's suffering pretty badly on the right had side, but it has a great view of the ocean.

Ki'i

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

The cove is where royalty would come to visit.

A Frame with Carver

There is a carver in a native outfit carving a tall ki'i - what we would call a totem pole around here.
On the right is an outrigger canoe.

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.

New and Old Totem
The figure on the bottom is holding a copper on his chest. This totem tells part of the creation myth - it was carved by Bruce Alfred in 1995. It's part of the Nimpkish Burial Grounds in Alert Bay.

The totem in the back has since fallen down. The figures carved are Thunderbird, Dzunukwa, Grizzly bear with a copper in its mouth, Raven, Sisiyutl (Thunderbird with no ears/horns). It was carved by Arthur Shaughnessy and was raised in 1924. It was carved as a memorial to Chief Wakas.
