“In Hesquiaht we have a woodpecker dance. This mask is showing its human form. A passerby in the forest nearing a pond heard a commotion. He crept closer to the pond and peeked through the brush. To his amazement, he saw a woodpecker bathing in his human form singing a song and performing a dance. This is how we learnt this woodpecker dance. The woodpecker is the predictor. He predicts what is coming and going. The colour red is the colour of the east.”
