During their time living in Bella Bella, the Houstons took many photographs of the lives of the Heiltsuk First Nation community documenting the day-to-day lives of the Heiltsuk First Nation as well as ceremonial activities. The colour slides document the construction, painting, and launching of the Gi’wa, a Heiltsuk canoe which sailed with the Lootaas, the Haida canoe built by Bill Reid for Expo 86. Some of the slides document the welcome feast at Bella Bella in honour of the Haida crew of the Lootaas. The colour slides also document several potlatches and wedding feasts held in the community hall, and the local Sports Day parade. Slides also depict the role of the fishing in the community, such as smoking salmon and processing roe. Other photos document gravestones on a nearby cemetery island, derelict canneries, petroglyphs and pictographs, totem poles and house posts, all in or near Bella Bella.

Collections Care, Management and Access fonds

  • 133
  • Fonds
  • 1948 - 2014

Fonds consists of records generated by the Collections Care, Management (CCMA) department at the Museum of Anthropology. These records include administrative records and planning material that document the work of the three units within CCMA: Collections, Conservation, and the Audrey & Harry Hawthorn Library and Archives. Record types include policies, loan documentation, acquisition documentation, object evaluations and photographs, conservation notes, teaching and special project files, exhibit planning material, correspondence, budget reports, and meeting minutes.

The fonds is divided into four sous-fonds, one for each of the three units within CCMA, as well as a sous-fonds for general CCMA administrative records:

  1. Collections
  2. Conservation
  3. Audrey & Harry Hawthorn Library and Archives
  4. CCMA Administration

Because of changes to the organization of MOA over the years, there are some overlaps in these functions, especially with older material. For example, there are likely some records relevant to conservation in the Collections sous-fonds and vice-versa.

The delicate hand colouring of the albumen silver prints is one of the characteristics of photographs of Japan from this period.
