George Hunt Jr., of Kwakwakawakw, Qwaya Sam, of Ahousaht First Nation, Noel Brown, of Snuneymuxw, and Thomas Jones, of Snuneymuxw are busy carving two red cedar into totem poles donated by Island Timberlands. The totem poles are two of a set of three that will sit by the entrance of the Shq'aphut, the Aboriginal Gathering Place at VIU. Each totem pole represents a native language spoken on Vancouver Island.
