Asian cultural festival

File consists of photographs documenting the final stage of log preparation for the creation of the Native Education Centre pole by Norman Tait and crew. At the beginning of the file images depict the carvers making their finishing tools, including small single handed adzes and curved knives. This stage involves the carvers adding all the finishing details, such as teeth and eyelids, to the figures. It also includes the raising of the pole during a ceremony given by the Native Education Centre. The textual info is in WHERE THE PEOPLE GATHER or paperback TOTEM POLE CARVING. Photo shows preparations (canoe repair and making regalia) involved in Norman Tait and crew making a significant appearance at the first (and only) Asian Cultural Festival.

Crew and log at the old UBC carving shed

Item is a b&w negative of a photograph of people after log has been moved into the old UBC carving shed. The textual info is in WHERE THE PEOPLE GATHER or paperback TOTEM POLE CARVING p. 40-41.)
Notes:
• Norman told me that “they” had to pay for moving the log to UBC’s carving shed (i.e. it came out of his contract monies). After the log was moved into the shed, the wolf clan chieftainess Mercy Robinson Thomas makes a public call for donations. As people come up and put money into a cedarbark hat, she calls out their name and amount. Andy Morrison (in army beret) helps collect and count the money. A total of $126.05 is collected. Then Chip jumps on the log and thanks everybody for their help.

Item is a b&w negative of a photograph of the continuation of the work on the pole. Norman starts to sketch on the log. The textual info is in WHERE THE PEOPLE GATHER or paperback TOTEM POLE CARVING p. 45-47).

Notes:
Once the log is suitably rounded, Norman is eager to get the drawings on the pole. He brings in the tissue sketches he did for the bid submission, roughly sketching them onto the log. (Note the 5th image [a020808] shows my darkroom printing notations--often my photo choices are indicated with a wax pencil on the contact sheet—sometimes with an X, sometimes a triangle, sometimes a dot—depending on the job.)
