Custodial history

Scope and content

Photograph depicts a totem pole at Prospect Point in Stanley Park. Though totem poles are common to the Coastal First Nations of British Columbia, the three First Nations (Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh) who claim Stanley Park as their ancestral land were not represented in Stanley Park with this cultural art form until the summer of 2008.

Up until this time, totem poles produced by carvers of the Nuu-chah-nulth, from Vancouver Island's west coast, the Haida and Nisga'a of British Columbia's north coast, and most abundantly, the Kwakwaka'wakw of the north and northeaster coast of Vancouver Island were the only ones found in Stanley Park. The pole in this photograph was most likely produced by a carver from the Kwakwaka'wakw nation.

Totem pole with Thunderbird on top; wood sign in front of totem pole reads "PROSPECT POINT"; lookout shelter behind totem pole; two people in right of image and five people in left of image, looking over wooden fence; Lion's Gate Bridge and Coast Mountains in background.
