It was carved by Sekwilm Siyan Sintl', Stan Joseph Jr., assisted by Wesley Nahanee and William Nahanee.This Welcoming Figure was raised at the first K'aya'chtn (gather of ocean canoes). The Squamish Nation dedicated this figure on July 25th, 2001 with a prayer to Welcome/Guardian Woman in gratitude to all our grandmothers.
