First Nations Clan Carvings

First Nations artist Ben Gerow for the Ts'il Kaz Koh First Nation, otherwise known as the Burns Lake Band. Gerow has completed four large red cedar clan carvings that are placed in various locations throughout the village’s downtown core.
The carvings are a joint initiative between the Burns Lake Band, the Village of Burns Lake, the Regional District of Bulkley Nechako and Tourism B.C. Gerow grew up in Burns Lake and has been carving for more than 33 years. Each of the carvings took approximately one month to produce, and are created from one solid section of red cedar. Each carving represents one of the four clans in the Burns Lake area – Bear, Beaver, Caribou and Frog.
