Memory of the Month VIII

Memory of the Month VIII

I started my blog on June 24, 2017. It’s been a very interesting endeavour. Thank you readers, for visiting, You have made the journey enjoyable! For each like, comment, and follow, you are appreciated more than you could know. Since some of my early posts only had two or three views, I’m reposting one per month that was special to me. Here’s my Memory of the Month for February. (Originally posted on July 10, 2017)

Beauty Restored

Beauty Restored

This restored totem pole, in one of our parks, is of Kwakiutl design. An impressive Thunderbird is perched above a person, a person who is fortunate to have this powerful being watching over him. The Kwakiutl people were almost decimated by disease when the settlers arrived, but now There are about 4000 First Nations people of Kwakiutl descent. I’m glad we have this example of their artistic talent and tradition.
