The Royal Collection
Photograph of a T'sou-ke man in a head and shoulder length portrait, facing the viewer and with shoulder length hair. The T'sou-ke Nation derived their name from the Northern Straits Salish word for a species of stickleback fish that lives nearby. The town of Sooke in British Columbia on the south of Vancouver Island takes its name from these people.
