Guests traveling to potlatches and other feasts traveled in large Nuu-chah-nulth style canoes capable of holding up to 30 people. These canoes belonged to the hundreds of guests attending a potlatch at the Songhees Reserve on Vancouver Island. Photographed by R. Maynard sometime between 1897 and 1910.
