Thunderbird Headdress SOLD
The grand opening Potlatch of the new Big House in Alert Bay took place May 17th, 1999. It was on this occasion that Donny Alfred had the honour of dancing Vincent Shaughnessy's Thunderbird headdress before the tribal chiefs. Vincent Shaughnessy was a major contributor to the rebuilding of the Big House, having a hand in carving many of the totem poles. We are proud to feature this fine Kwakiutl piece which has been a participant in the sacred potlatch ceremony.
