Totem Poles, Stanley Park, Vancouver, British Columbia

Photograph depicts five totem poles. 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.

Five totem poles, two short, three tall, all topped with the Thunderbird; woman in light dress and dark cardigan standing in front of guard rail surrounding totem poles; forested area in background.
