Good day, I am an employee of the Province of BC and am partnering with a Gitxsan wilp on a project that includes recognition signage of territory holders and cultural education. The Gitxsan wilp (house) Simoogit (chief)  would like to commission a Tsimshian 'copper' style sign using the same format as numerous existing signs in Gitxsan territory referred to as the 'hand of history' http://www.hazeltonstourism.ca/hands-of-history.html. It appears to me they may be cast aluminum, about ½ inch think with raised lettering, border and adzed style marks. I have checked with the local government (Hazelton and Regional District of Kitimat Stikine) who all agree it was a regional district led project but no one knows who produced them. Any leads on who did, or could, produce this style of sign would be most appreciated!

Best regards,
