Their tasty bannock cooked fresh on site and spread with berry jams is a must for you to taste. It is a recipe has been handed down from generation to generation with a few tweaks here and there. Wild sockeye salmon is available in two ways, candied-smoked salmon using a secret recipe and salmon skews in a lemon and pepper marinade.
 
They will also have Artisans on site displaying a variety of wares to sell. There will be many unique and creative items to delight your senses.

History of the I-Hos Logo

K'omoks First Nations I-Hos Gallery in the Comox Valley opened over 19 years ago and in commemoration of this event, Master Carver and Chief Calvin Hunt speaks about the history of the I-Hos logo and the local stories he and his team drew from that inspired the design back in 1994.

Calvin Hunt comes from the village of Fort Rupert, on the northern end of Vancouver Island. Many years ago Calvin and his carvers were commissioned to carve a canoe, and they drew inspiration from the Legend of Queneesh; a creation story from the K’omoks Village. When it came time to design the front of the I-Hos Gallery building they carved this Great Whale (Queneesh) with a door entrance which represents the blowhole. On the whale’s tail is the main body of the sea serpent with the bodies coming off to the sides. The sea serpent is a double-headed serpent.
