Totems in Stanley Park from Local First Nations

The Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations claim Stanley Park as part of their traditional territories. Yet, for generations, the totem poles in the park have been from communities in other parts of British Columbia. Now, local First Nations have rectified that situation and erected their own gateways in Stanley Park.

The Vancouver Sun covers the story and, significantly, adds a timeline illustrating the history of using aboriginal symbols, poles, and other art works for promoting tourism in BC.
