Indian Village Comox Vancouver Island.  The highest carving has a carved wooden head suspended by the sinew of a deer in memory of his brave and daring feat in [waying?  waylaying?] a family of eleven indians, men, women, and children and bringing their heads home to his lodge as trophies of his prowess.  Berries were drying on the rude structures in front of their houses, made or pressed into cakes for winter use.
