Huu-ay-aht treasures are one step closer to being home. They arrived in Port Alberni today in early afternoon to be revealed at the Huu-ay-aht People’s Assembly this weekend.
Ownership of the 17 items was legally transferred from the Royal BC Museum to the Huu-ay-aht Ha’wiih (hereditary chiefs) with the formal signing of papers. A Huu-ay-aht ceremonial signing will occur tomorrow with their citizens to witness before the items go home to Anacla near Bamfield.
