Image of the houseposts and beam of what once was a longhouse in Quatsino, BC, on the north end of Vancouver Island. These posts appear to be the same as posts now houses at the Museum of Anthropology (museum item number A50009 a-c). The poles are described on the museum's catalogue: "Two upright posts and crossbeam that were part of a large interior house frame (also see records d-f and g-h). The uprights depict sea lions carved in high relief and painted (parts a-b). Their heads are equal size to their bodies. Both part a and b have an eagle in profile within the sea lions front flippers. Part a has a top portion of a face painted on the back of its head that is part of a sisiutl that runs down the seal lions back and into its hind flipper with a serpent's head in each. The cross-beam (part c) is painted and carved as a supernatural double-headed sea lion. All parts are painted black and white with Northwest Coast stylized forms... The Klix'ken (sea lion) House was commissioned by Tza'kyius around 1906, and was the last old style house erected in Xwatis. The beams and figures stood as part of a house frame, and acted as structural supports. Figures represented on house frames were supernatural beings which the family living in the house had the right, through their history and origins, to represent."
File consists of photographs of a pow wow hosted in Alkali Lake. The Alkali Lake Dance Group, led by president Johnny Johnson, hosted this pow wow of non-traditional pow-wow style dancing, which was received enthusiastically.
File consists of miscellaneous photographs taken in the Shushwap communities that Jensen and Powell lived in, including Williams Lake, Alkali Lake, and Canim Lake. During their time working on the Shushwap language project, Jensen and Powell had two toddlers, and often the photographs are personal images of their family and their daily lives in the communities.
File consists of photographs taken for possible use in the Shushwap language education books "Let's study Shushwap: Books 1 and 2", "Learning Shushwap: Books 1 and 2", and "Shushwap Teachers Manual." The photographs provide recognizable locations to be used with the books, as well as illustrate activities and concepts (e.g. numbers).
The majority of the file contains historical images of the Tsilhqot'in, Secwepemc, Stl'al'lmx, and the Nlaka'pamux peoples. The photographs depict village life, including images of building structures in the BC interior, fish processing techniques such as fish drying, and carvings such as mortuary poles. Some of the images also depict First Nations people, some in regalia. The other images are official photographs taken by various museums in Canadian and American museums of Tsilhqot'in, Secwepemc, Stl'al'lmx, or Nlaka'pamux artifacts. The textual records contained in this file consist of a photocopy of a magazine article titled "Upstairs, downstairs: the early years," written by Heather Pringle, and published in the June 1996 (Volume 111, number 5) edition of the magazine Saturday Night.
