3 Indigenous Poles and Posts
Outside Walking Tour 
FULL! Friday, August 11, 2017

The Belkin Art Gallery Public Programs has put together this special, outdoor walking tour just for AAPS Members. With the recent installation of the Reconciliation Pole, we thought it would be a good time to talk about the artists and stories of three of the poles and posts at Point Grey Campus. We’ll start outside of Brock Hall with the Victory Through Honour Pole by distinguished Kwakwaka’wakw carver Ellen Neel.  The gift of the original pole was made in 1948. Next, near the UBC Bookstore is the Musqueam Post by carver Brent Sparrow Jr of the Musqueam First Nation. We’ll end our tour near the Forest Sciences Centre at the Reconciliation Pole by master carver and hereditary chief, 7idansuu (Edenshaw), James Hart of the Haida Nation This is a great opportunity for members to deepen their understanding of how artistic practices can be used to address urgent, contemporary social and political concerns.
