PROVENANCE
Acquired in Alert Bay, British Columbia by the current Private Collector, Vancouver in the mid-1960s


Jack James was born around 1901 - 1915 on Gwa'yasdams (Gilford Island). He is a member of the Kwakwaka'wakw First Nation and father and teacher of Basil James (1938 - 2005).

As part of a provincial government initiative in 1966 to celebrate the centennial of the colonies of Vancouver Island joining British Columbia, 19 totem poles were created by 11 First Nations carvers and were spread across Vancouver Island. Jack James created one of these commissioned totem poles which is located in Parksville, British Columbia. Further details on this totem can be found here: https://www.mondaymag.com/entertainment/parksvilles-totem-pole-gets-new-home-old-look/
