Tla-o-qui-aht Whaler’s Hat

This Tla-o-qui-aht Whaler's Hat, created by Ellen Curley, is part of the Royal BC Museum's 100 Objects of Interest. The designs encircling the brim represent the mountains that outline Nuu-chah-nulth territories. The whale and whaling canoe appear to chase each other around the sides of the hat.Tla-o-qui-aht Whaler’s Hat
