Photograph of a wooden shelter with a sloping roof that affords shelter to a number of carved wooden figures that mark the site of a Chief's grave. On the left are four figures, one wearing a top hat. Above them is a wooden frame decorated with carved bears that signify the deceased Chief's crest or totem. On the right stands a larger, more central figure dressed in clothes consisting of a shirt, trousers and a necktie. The latter two items decorated with polka dots. To the right of this figure in the foreground stands a fir tree and on the ground lie broken kettles and other hardware for use in the after life.
