Missing Face

missing face of figure on center house post, Chief Son-i-Hat Whale House, Kasaan, Alaska

The center house post of Naay I'waans (Great House), or Chief Son-i-Hat Whale House, has been missing part of a face for decades. PLEASE, when you visit, be careful, respectful, and DON'T REMOVE ANYTHING. Of course, no fires or camping are allowed.

  1. You would hope that visitors would be respectful of these wonderful treasures other wise why would someone bother to visit if the totems aren't important to them??? I've never understood defacing what belongs to others!!!

    I love the colors on this one!!!
