Native Heritage Painted in 1983 by Paul Ygartua

This immense mural is based on figures from the Native past and present in this area. Carved poles flank the central images of (left) Ce-who-latza, who was chief of the Lyakun Village on Shingle Point, Valdez Island, as well as a constable of the Native Police and a Native pilot for the Royal Navy; (centre) former Chemainus Band Chief Clay-sa-luke; and (right), a Salish woman. Among the other figures who appear is Mrs. Mary Rice, top right.
