Photo of the Month – December 2009

Burial poles, SGang Gwaay, Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands). To celebrate the BC government’s offical intention to rename the islands to Haida Gwaii (Islands of the Haida [people]), and because this photo by Kevin conveys some of the power of Haida carving, we’ve chosen this as our photo of the month. Taken by Kevin Smith at UN World Heritage Site SGang Gwaay (Ninstints) on a Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) trip in May.
