BUTTERFLY DESIGN
The idea of the butterfly was brought to our attention by the
Late Margaret Hewer. The butterfly represents the messenger
of the departed souls. It is also said to be a symbol of the traveling
Spirits, those departed and misplaced that are wandering about.
The design was created by the Late Brad Collinson and adopted
by our committee as our logo.

SIMON FRASER UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF ARCHAEOLOGY
In April 2005, a small delegation of Haida traveled to the Simon Fraser University (SFU) to bring home four ancestors turned in to SFU after graves were exposed by natural forces. The HRC learned of these ancestors when SFU brought this information to our attention at the first Aboriginal Repatriation Conference in Canada, hosted in
Old Massett in 2004.
