Title: HERA: The Fire Ship of Clayoquot Sound

Year: 2012

Author(s): David Griffiths

Type: Book

Description:
Back cover copy: "On a November night in 1899 the darkness of Tofino Harbour was driven back by the arrival of a blazing ship of fire. This drifting inferno was the abandoned American Schooner HERA, about to end her final voyage from hell. With an already storied past, the HERA was far from finished with history in the aftermath of her loss would become the catalyst for murder and mayhem, selfless acts of heroism and humanity, intrigue and insanity. Designated British Columbia's first underwater heritage site upon its discovery in 1974, the HERA continues to this day to give up long-guarded secrets from her past. Though the flames are long extinguished, memory still burns bright for the fire ship of Clayoquot Sound."

Title: Which Whales Were Hunted? Genetic Species Identification of Bones from Traditional Whaling Sites on Vancouver Island

Year: 2012

Author(s): Stephanie Beland

Type: Student Paper

Description:
Archaeological evidence and oral history suggest that active whale hunting by the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations of Vancouver Island is a large part of their traditional culture. What is not clear is which species was the preferred target. Some data suggest that the primary target was gray whales (Eschrichtuis robustus), whereas other sources of information suggest that the hunt targeted a mixture of gray and humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae). Addressing this issue is of increasing importance due to the interest of some traditional groups in resuming their hunts, now that these two species are recovering from industrial whaling. Here, I address this issue through the genetic analysis of bones recovered from historic whaling sites. Samples were collected from a range of sites, the DNA extracted, and species identification was based on sequence analysis of two regions of the mitochondrial DNA (the control region and the cytochrome b gene). I was able to successfully obtain DNA from over 90% of the bones, and the data suggests an approximate 50:50 ratio or gray and humpback whales in the traditional hunts. Further sampling, across a wider range of traditional sites, is needed to address regional difference in preferred species. These data demonstrate the great promise of this approach for informing management decisions regarding the resumption of these traditional hunts, and will also lead to an improved understanding of this aspect of Canadian history and culture.
