SGang Gwaay XIX


Looking from near the south end of SGang Gwaay last October at sunrise.

This is taken from the front corner of House 2 as numbered on this web page which has some information and historical photos.

There are at least three numbering schemes for the houses and/or poles at SGang Gwaay – the web page linked above is an illustration from George MacDonald’s Monumental Haida Art.

SGang Gwaay is a UNESCO World Heritage Site on an island on the south-west side of Gwaii Haanas

If you don’t know where SGang Gwaay is, check out this map (here)  and if you use the “street view” yellow person icon you can take a virtual tour along the trail through the village.

Click the SGang Gwaay tag at the bottom of this post (or just click here) to see many more images taken during numerous visits while working in Gwaii Haanas.
