These are Chilkat style blankets worn by Kwagu people from Fort Rupert. The Kwagu people have rights to this style of blanket through ties to the Tlingit such as marriage etc.

Many people are gathered around a unique looking chilkat weaving. It is not in the shape of a blanket but in the shape of a copper. A copper is a piece of copper which is beaten out, formed into the copper shape and held by a chief during ceremony. A chilkat weaving of this shape is unique and it is also exactly what you are looking for. You explain to the people how it was lost and where it belongs. They comply and wish you safe journeys for your way back to UVIC.

Congratulations! You have completed your journey. You may ascend to the ceremony where the pieces of furniture will be united and put to use.
