K’uuna is located on the east coast of Louise Island (here), just north of Gwaii Haanas.
By sea, this is 130 km north of SGang Gwaay Llnagaay, the subject of yesterday’s post.
The fluting on this mortuary pole looks as if it was inspired by classical European architecture, perhaps seen on early buildings in Victoria, or in printed illustrations.
It is one of five locations in southern Haida Gwaii where Haida watchmen live in the summer and serving as stewards and guides.
It is on an exposed shoreline and often a difficult landing, but we did manage on one of the two tours I was on.
