Photograph of two members of the Cowichan tribe from Vancouver Island, British Columbia. They are seated on a wooden bench with a wicker basket on the left and a wooden bucket that holds potatoes on the right. Both face the viewer. The subject on the right wears a conical shaped hat.
The Cowichan tribe belong to the Coast Salish peoples who inhabit the Cowichan Valley area of Vancouver Island. Their name may originate from the Quw'utsun group of First Nation People that has since been Anglicised..
