Crew and log at the old UBC carving shed

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.

Crew moving log from the Turnbull & Gail construction yard in Richmond (contractors for building the new Native Education Centre) to UBC's carving shed

Item is a b&w negative of a photograph of the crew loading log onto flatbed truck to move it from the Turnbull & Gail construction yard in Richmond (contractors for the Native Ed. Centre) to old UBC carving shed. Info corresponds to text from WHERE THE PEOPLE GATHER or paperback TOTEM POLE CARVING pp. 38-41.

Notes:
Robert Tait (Chip) had told all the guys to ask as many people as possible to come move the log off the truck and into the carving shed. They didn’t have a forklift to do this but Norman also said he wanted as many people as possible to “touch the log”, that he wanted things done as traditionally as possible. All lifts and moves were done to the beat of the drum. The log was heavy and it was also difficult getting it between the small saplings.
