Part of A Family Tree Narrative series

The Assu family-their name meaning "a father that's highly respected"-descend from Chief Billy Assu, the last hereditary chief of the We Wai Kai band (Kwakwaka'wakw) in Cape Mudge, a tiny community on the southwest shore of BC's Quadra Island. Donald Assu, his siblings and children discuss the continued importance of the potlatch ceremony to their family and their people-its history, its songs, the poetic and ancient language of big-house orators, and the passing on of traditional names.
