Join HCPL and the Minden Hills Cultural Centre for a special screening of Totem: The Return of the G'psgolox Pole.

This feature-length documentary traces the journey of the Haisla people to reclaim the G'psgolox totem pole that went missing from their British Columbia village in 1929. The fate of the 19th century traditional mortuary pole remained unknown for over 60 years until it was discovered in a Stockholm museum where it is considered state property by the Swedish government.

The screening will take place in the Welch Room starting at 5pm. No registration required. The film is provided courtesy of the NFB.
