This mortuary pole was raised for Skedans, head chief of Skedans village. On the plaque was a moon with a Thunderbird face, and on the pole is a Grizzly Bear at the bottom and a Mountain Goat above. All of these were crests of Skedans. In this photo, the pole is being removed from Skidegate, and is being taken to Stanley Park, Vancouver, BC.
