The mortuary, on the left, that originally had a hawk-and-moon front plaque, was fully carved. The main figure on the support post was a grizzly bear, and above it a killer whale eating a man. The head of the man was upside down, and his arms emerged from the bear’s ears. This pole was removed to Victoria in 1957 without the plaque, which had disappeared many years before, and now stands in the Museum of Anthropology at UBC.
On the right, this short memorial pole depicted a seated human figure wearing a chief’s hat. This memorial pole was purchased by the Totem Pole Preservation Committee and moved to the Royal BC Museum, Victoria in 1957.
