Hosaqami

(Camera: Olympus OM-PC; Lens: Zuiko 24mm f/2.8; Film: Kodak Ektar 100)

The new Hosaqami totem pole is located on the grounds of Government House, Victoria, BC. This replica was carved by Chief Tony Hunt and installed in September 2012. The original Hosaqami was carved by Chief Mungo Martin, Hunt’s grandfather, and was displayed on Whale Island in Portsmouth, England, from 1959 until the late 1980s when the ravages of English Channel weather eventually damaged it beyond repair. The remains of this pole are now slowly “returning to the Earth” at Government House, in back of the Cary Castle Mews.
