Curatorial Comment
In 1974, the West Coast District Council of Indian Chiefs struggled with the decision of whether to destroy two Alberni IRS residences (Caldwell and Ross Halls) after the federal government announced that it would no longer maintain the buildings. Years later, the Tseshaht First Nation invited survivors of Alberni IRS to participate in a ceremonial demolition of Peake Hall, February 2009.
