Govenor [sic]and Mrs. Michner [sic], Alert Bay

Governor General Roland Michener and his wife Norah pose with a short totem pole. Trees and buildings are visible in the distance. Totem pole appears similar to a pole attributed to Arthur Shuaghnessy that was raised for Kamdatsa (Mrs. Tom Patch) of Village Island or New Vancouver, a woman who lived to be over 100 years old. That pole was eventually raised on her grave.

Hope Island, Humchitt posts rear

Image of two old house posts on Hope Island, BC. The post on the right appears to be the same as a post now housed at the Museum of Anthropology, that was collected from Hope Island in 1956. Both posts feature a human figure with large eyes. On one post, the figure is holding a small face near its waist. On the other post, the figure is holding what appears to be an animal of some kind. The Museum of Anthropology's website provides the following description of the posts: "The posts of the unfinished house of Ha'm'cit were carved by a man from Smith Inlet called Si.wit who moved to Xu'mtaspi and married Tom Omhyid's mother. Ha'm'cit died before the house was finished. (Information provided to Prof. Wilson Duff by Mungo Martin). The artist's potlatch name was P'aczsmaxw. Wayne Suttles places the Xu'mtaspi village as Nahwitti, in historic times, however it was occupied jointly by the Nahwitti, the Yalhinuxw, and the Noqemqilisala (of Hanson Lagoon)."
