Kwakiutl First Nation – Fort Rupert BC (part 1)

Kwakiutl First Nation – Fort Rupert BC (part 1)

The Kwakiutl First Nation is also known as the Fort Rupert Band, and in traditional Kwakwaka’wakw terms as the Kwagu’ł or Kwagyewlth.

Located on the North East Side of Vancouver island in Fort Rupert, the Kwakiutl First Nation is a community that takes pride (and so it should) in their beautiful totem poles and handcrafted canoes that can be seen throughout the area.

Looking at these beautiful works of craftsmanship had me examining them even closer.  Although the totems are magnificent,  I wanted to capture a more personal look at these beautiful works of art by giving you close-up shots.  Check out all the photos I captured of the totem poles – A Visual Experience
