Tsawout First Nation carver Howard La Fortune (right) stands beside his wife, Tuesday, near their home in Victoria, British Columbia. They are wearing bear masks that La Fortune carved out of yellow cedar in honor of those impacted by COVID-19. While not for protection against the coronavirus, they offer comfort. He says, “the bear symbolizes strength, and that is what we need about now to get through all this.” Photo by Sydney Woodward.
