General note

Photograph depicts a First Nations burial structure under a covering, with two chairs and a rug in front of it, and adorned with the British flag. Inscribed on the reverse is the following poem:<em>The Indian’s Grave</em>;<em>Bright are the heavens, the narrow bay serene; </em>;<em>No sound is heard within the sheltered place</em>;<em>Save some sweet whisper of the pines, nor seen</em>;<em>Of restless man or of his works a trace; </em>;<em>I stray through bushes low, a little space; </em>;<em>Unlooked for sight their parted leaves disclose; </em>;<em>Restless no more, lo! one of the Indian race,</em>;<em>His bones beneath that roof of bark repose.</em>;<em>Poor savage, in such bark through deepening snows</em>;<em>Once didst thou dwell. In this through rivers move; </em>;<em>Frail house, frail skiff, frail man,</em>;<em>Of him who knows</em>;<em>His master’s will, not thine the doom shall prove; </em>;<em>What will be yours, ye powerful, wealthy, wise,</em>;<em>By whom the heathen unregarded dies?</em>;Bishop G.J. Mountain<br><br>
