Men stand at the prow of their canoe at the Whale House Rededication ceremony. Humor is an important part of Haida culture, and there was a lot of laughter at the celebration.

Cedar bark hats (and cell phones taking photos) were everywhere!

Harley's drum has seen a lot of use!

There was a big crowd at the Whale House. The frontal totem in this photo is huge and towers over 50 feet high.

A dancer on the beach enjoyed the singing and drumming.

The Haida dancers sang and drummed as they danced their way around the longhouse.

Totem poles at the Kasaan Totem Park next to the Whale House.

Inside the Whale House there are three totem poles that tell Haida stories.

These totem poles are over a century old.

This beautiful Haida woman stood by the canoe that she helped paddle to the ceremony in Kasaan.

Paddles raised, the Haida people wait to go ashore.
