Gene Davidson and Avis O'Brien display their daughter K'yuusda during her 'Hilugwila' (traditional naming ceremony), which is part of their ancestral Kwakwaka'wakw culture. The event took place in Campbell River, which is part of the Liqwildawx territory. Avis O'Brien said of the event, ''September 8th, 2018 marks an important point in history for the Gigal'gam Namima of the Ligwildawx People. For the first time in 100 years we honoured one of our babies with the Hilugwila ceremony. It was also the first time in 100 years we gathered as a Namima in the Gukzdi. It was beautiful to see how our family came together to reclaim the ancient ceremony.''
