Our History

* * *

David Frank Sr. is the patriarch of the Frank family from Ahousat, British Columbia. John Frank Jr., the owner of Pipers, is the son of John Frank Sr., who was the youngest son of 13 children from David Frank Sr. There are approximately 600 living descendents of David Frank Sr.!

David Frank was a well-known carver of various native works of art including the traditional canoe hanging from the Pipers Pub entrance. He started carving canoes from Red Cedar trees when he was 13 years old. He lived to be over 80 years old and in his carving career he carved out 77 Red Cedar canoes and hundreds of paddles! The canoe hanging outside Pipers Pub was his last project. Halfway through this last masterpiece, David became blind. Rather than stopping, he used 'feeling'...he felt the wood and carved from memory.

In wedding ceremonies, the canoe was used as a strong symbolic ceremonial tribute: male members of a bride's family, along with the bride, are seated in the canoe. A loud family traditional song---lead by a group of native singers---fills the room as teh males in the canoe ceremoniously paddle their way to the beat of the drums and to the bride's new husband and homeland. If it is a groom using the ceremonial song, then it would be the groom seated by the bride who are on the way to the new homeland
(Story by Gloria Jean Frank, wife of John Sr.)
