Totem Pole Raised at Hiellen Longhouse Village

Aboriginal Day (June 21, 2017) was even more amazing than usual on Haida Gwaii. The village council of Old Massett (the Haida Nation) invited the entire community to attend a totem pole raising at Hiellen Longhouse Village (Hl’yaalan ‘Lngee and Tlielang). Christian White, the master carver, was commandeered to create this new totem that incorporates various images from the old totem that existed in the same place between 1820 and approximately 1923. The event, which included songs, dances, and an enormous salmon feast, lasted all day long.
