Throne of Kingcome
British Columbia, Canada
They had faces which only long life and hard outdoor work yeild. Weathered leather with creases where eyes have been forced to squint from the summer sun best describes it.
There was a seriousness to their posture, to their tone, to their questions. They obviously didn’t get too many outside visitors. It was then that I realized I was there only as a temporary guest. Everything about this meeting with the elders clearly let me know that. Eventually it was my words of respect which allowed me access to the remote village of Kingcome.
This image is a testament to the simple harmonious life they lead and the honor they have to their people, heritage and their love of family. What a wonderful group of human beings.
See Ya On the Trail!
