Location:Alison Sound, British Columbia, Canada
Alison Sound extends north and east from Belize Inlet, which in turn branches off from Seymour Inlet. This huge inlet system is separated from British Columbia's outer coast by the Nakwakto Rapids, just south of Cape Caution on Queen Charlotte Sound. The area is part of the Great Bear Rainforest and the traditional territory of the Nak’waxda’xw people, who likely painted this and other red ochre pictographs in numerous places on the sheer granite walls of Alison Sound and Belize Inlet.
