This file contains images of totem poles collected for research. Some images are from the collections of other institutions.

Bill Reid pole

Subseries contains images mostly taken by McLennan that show the Bill Reid pole which sat outside the Museum of Anthropology at UBC being taken down and moved inside the museum because it was no longer stable due to weathering. This spurred a project funded with a Canada Council grant to then create a new pole to put up in its place. This pole was carved by Jim Hart and called the Respect to Bill Reid pole.

Gitxsan

File contains historical photographs of Gitxsan villages, with a specific focus on totem poles and various buildings in the villages. There are also some images of the Gitxsan people in regalia. The textual records contain information to some of the photographs, listing the photograph's title and the museum and/or archive it originated from.

Haida

File mainly contains historical images of Haida and Tlingit villages and totem poles located on the Northwest Coast of British Columbia and Alaska. There are also images of Haida and Tlingit peoples dressed in regalia.

There are also images of a modern day ceremony in front of some totem poles and long houses. The textual records include photocopies of images of totem poles and Haida and Tlingit villages.
