The M茅tis sash is developed from both European and First Nations roots. Several Eastern Canadian First Nations groups shared the tradition of the wampum belt, a sash-like belt made of hide upon which prophecies of the future were embroidered. Sashes are worn by men and women and are usually belted around the waist or worn diagonally across the shoulder. M茅tis sashes are today worn with pride at social gatherings, celebrations, formal events, and any other time a M茅tis person wishes to express pride of heritage. 



The Renaissance Coffee Totem Pole is clearly visible from the Renaissance Coffee area in the northeast corner of the Academic Quadrangle at 麻豆传媒高清版. It was carved 鈥 circa 1970 鈥 by a non-Aboriginal archaeology student, who has chosen to remain anonymous. In an outside location, exposed to the elements, it looks much like such poles would have in traditional Northwest Coast First Nations communities. 

In the early 1970s, Ray Wesley of the Tsimshian First Nation was commissioned by the Alumni Association to carve these poles, which stood for many years in Naheeno Park, on the southern flank of Burnaby Mountain. They have been restored through funding from the Alumni Association under the auspices of the 麻豆传媒高清版 Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology. The shorter pole depicts a wolf with its tail evident at the bottom. The taller pole depicts a bear grasping a raven with a frog below. After extensive consultations with a committee involving various campus partners 鈥 and after considering numerous options around the campus, inside and outside 鈥 it was decided to give two of the historic Ray Wesley totem poles a place of honor and recognition outside the Office for Aboriginal Peoples (OAP). The inside location will protect the poles in the long term, provide some visibility to the OAP, emphesizes the importance of the poles, and honors them and their carver, Mr. Ray Wesley.

This First Nations Copper/Owl/Raven wall hanging was created in 2010 by Heiltsuk-Cree artist and elder, Mia Hunt (Th脿qvailh). The striking red and black design features a traditional West Coast First Nations 鈥淐opper鈥 with an owl鈥檚 head within. This is framed by two raven figures. 鈥淐oppers鈥 were created from copper metal. They were beaten into sheets or plates and then painted with traditional figures, usually clan symbols. Coppers were considered status items and thus held great value, being passed down through generations. Regarding the raven, it is a highly respected creature among West Coast First Nations people. It is widely recognized as a trickster figure, a spiritual being with transformative powers, who would teach lessons to mankind. The raven is also viewed by some groups as a creator and provider to mankind. Location of wall hanging: Career Services Atrium, Room 0300, Maggie Benston Building, 麻豆传媒高清版.
