also known as Mungo Martin House, a Kwakwaka'wakw "big house", with
heraldic pole. Built by Chief Mungo Martin in 1953. Located at
Thunderbird Park in Victoria, British Columbia. House built by Mungo
Martin and David Martin with carpenter Robert J. Wallace. Based on
Chief Nakap'ankam's house in Tsaxis (Fort Rupert). The house "bears on
its house-posts the hereditary crests of Martin's family." It continues
to be used for ceremonies with the permission of Chief
Oast'akalagalis 'Walas 'Namugwis (Peter Knox, Martin's grandson) and
Mable Knox. Pole carved by Mungo Martin, David Martin and Mildred
Hunt. "Rather than display his own crests on the pole, which was
customary, Martin chose to include crests representing the A'wa'etlala,
Kwagu'l, 'Nak'waxda'xw and 'Namgis Nations. In this way, the pole
represents and honours all the Kwakwaka'wakw people.". Victoria's Inner
Harbour with The Empress hotel in the background. Colourful flowers
bedeck the genteel "Garden City" downtown. Victoria's Harbour with
Songhees condominiums in the background. The Christ Church Cathedral in
