Description: 
Clubs made from whale bone have their origins among the Nuu-Chah-Nulth (Nootka) people on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Whaling was central to Nuu-Chah-Nulth culture and the use of whale bone to create such a formidable weapon reveals their ingenuity. This elaborately carved club depicts a stylized bird with a small animal in its beak.
