The Nuu-chah-nulth materials in the Franz Boas Professional Papers consist of 2 items. One item is listed under Boas' "Kwakiutl songs and linguistic notes" and includes notes on some songs of Nuu-chah-nulth origin. The second item is listed under Hunt as "Yuquot whalers' shrine diagram" and consists of George Hunt's hand-drawn diagram of the layout of Yuquot Whalers' Shrine, subsequently removed from Yuquot and sent to the American Museum of Natural History in New York. A modified version of the diagram was printed as plate IV ("Plan of ceremonial house") in Franz Boas' "The Religion of the Kwakiutl Indians" (1930).
