Behind the facade of the six houses in the Grand Hall are exhibit spaces featuring artifacts and art, both of the historical period and the current day focusing on the Pacific Coast tribes. An entrance close to the spot where I left off yesterday brings us to see this first. Hamatsa Design Dance Screen is by Richard Hunt, and dates to 1989.

Behind The Facades: Art And Artifacts
I didn't photograph the tag for this, but it looks older.
Man Changing Into A Wolf is a print by Art Thompson, dating to 1974.
Here we get more into the artifacts side of things, with masks.
Video displays throughout these spaces are found, with First Nations peoples speaking about specific items or cultural aspects.
Haida artist David Robertson is behind this 1984 print, Every Year The Salmon Come Back.
More of the artifacts in this area. We'll continue here tomorrow.
