Description
2 point set of antler. The tips are missing. Dried marrow can be seen on the main stem.
History Of Use
Chief Thomas George 1892-1974. Mary Wells George 1900-1981. Both were born in Hagwilget village. They married in 1915 and had 6 sons and 2 daughters. Thomas was known as 'Gisdewe' and was a house chief of the Gidimt'en Clan of the Witsuwit'en. Mary was T'SAY'-BAY-SAH' in Carrier. For more info, see Historical Research file; George, Chief Thomas (Family). Chief Thomas was a hunter and lived off the land. This piece of antler is from his collection. Antler is stronger and harder than bone. It needed little shaping to produce a large powerful wedge for plitting off planks from a cedar or spruce log and the natural pointed tines of the antler were used as a punch. A section of the antler fitted the grip of a hand with a non-slip surface. The soft centre core would house the tool. Antler was cut & worked much the same way as wood. Before being worked, it was softened by water then chopped, hacked, cut and sanded to become an item like a barbed spear point, fish-hook barb, charms, combs and many other items.

History / Biographical
The Blunt Creek Blockade was set up on December 4th 1993 by members of the Witsuwit'en Nation to prevent logging trucks from Pacific Inland Resources from cutting down timber at Blunt Creek. Without this timber, the Witsuwit'en-run sawmill Kyah Forest Products was threatened with closure by August 1994. The blockade was a last-ditch act of peaceful civil resistance in order to get the attention of Forest Ministry officials. It came down on December 13th as Witsuwit'en chiefs negotiated a forest-use agreement for the Blunt Creek area.

Sixty-five youth and a support crew of 15 adults, representing the Babine Carrier, Witsuwit'en, Gitksan, and Tsimshian First Nations as well as Brazil, Guatemala, Malaysia, Mexico, Mongolia, Myanmar, Kenya, Rwanda, Thailand, and the United States, ultimately participated in the event.
