*The picture at the top of this page is called "Dakelhne". The large print hanging in the ARC is one of only 10 copies, created by Dennis Cumberland, an artist from Fort St. James. While kayaking on Stuart Lake, Cumberland began taking pictures and mapping by GPS the hieroglyphic sites he found. The result is a beautiful collection of Dakelh history.
