Mungo Martin (Chief NaKePenkim) attended residential school only briefly, apprenticing in carving with his stepfather, master carver Charles James. Martin is one of the Northwest Coast's most significant artists and mentors, who greatly contributed to the preservation of traditional Kwakwaka'wakw culture, and instigated its resurgence. Martin restored poles and houseposts for the University of British Columbia's Museum of Anthropology and for the Provincial Museum of British Columbia, and was chief carver at the latter institution's Thunderbird Park. He also replicated and created new feast dishes, masks, dance screens and other objects of utilitarian and ceremonial uses, and recorded many of the oral histories, traditions and 400 songs he knew. In addition, he carved a half-scale replica of the house in which he was born, and to dedicate it, held the first public potlatch since the governmental potlatch ban was rescinded. Martin was posthumously awarded a medal by the Canada Council.
