Model Houses and Poles

Since the early 20th century, 13 of the model houses and poles have been lost. As we try to reassemble the models for our upcoming exhibit, we need your help to find those that have gone missing. If you know the whereabouts of any of these model houses or poles, please contact us.

This is a collaborative project between the Burke Museum’s Bill Holm Center and the Haida Gwaii Museum at Kaay 'llnagaay.  Research has been funded by the UW Royalty Research Fund, a Canadian Embassy Senior Fellowship, a National Endowment for the Humanities Exhibit Planning Grant, and the College of Arts and Sciences, University of Washington.  The Field Museum of Natural History has facilitated research on their collections and archival records.
