The Gwaii Haanas Legacy Pole is Jaalen’s latest commission, a 42 foot pole that will stand at Windy Bay on Lyell Island in Gwaii Haanas. Click here to see more about this pole.
In 2010 Jaalen and his brother Gwaai made a successful proposal to carve the replacement for the Jasper Pole to be raised in Jasper park. Click here to check out the page for the Jasper Pole.
In 2009 Jaalen was commissioned to carve one of two poles to be raised outside the community hall in the Village of Old Masset. The poles were raised on June 20th, 2009.
