Bear, Fred Baker, Squamish Nation

18.5" x 5"

Bear (Chet-Woot).

Symbol of great strength, authority and mobility, and is an important family crest. Because of it's power and human-like qualities, the bear was referred to by West Coast people as Elder Kinsmen. When killed, it was taken to the chief's house, sprinkled with Eagle Down (a symbol of welcome and friendship) and generally treated as a high ranking guest.
