A Dick Bellis pole was raised at the entrance to the Spirit Lake Trail in Skidegate on Friday. His seven-year-old granddaughter Jaylene Shelford drummed and sang the entrance song as the pole was placed. The pole features both eagle and grizzly bear. Frogs, a symbol of good luck, long life and acquisition of wealth, are carved into the bear’s ears.
