Biodiversity destruction is an immoral practice by the inordinately powerful international forest industry. Not only is it able to squash nature protection but also indigenous rights. A blatant example is the Canada – BC Pavillion erected in 2006 in Torino, Italy, to promote the 2010 Olympics in BC. Its biggest corporate sponsor was BC Wood, an international lobby group for wood products and its centrepiece was the "Bella Coola Spirit Tree" (right).
The village of Kispiox was painted in 1929 by the early feminist artist Emily Carr (above). She was one of the first to grasp the compelling power of the totem pole as an art form: "The oldest art of our West, the art of the Indians, is in spirit very modern, full of liveness and vitality. . . The foundation that the Indian built his art upon was his Totem. He did not worship it, but he did reverence it tremendously.
