This is the largest collection of true totem poles you can find. The villagers also do cultural presentations. Worth a visit.

My sister is very interested in Native American art. We learned the history and meaning of the totems. We were able to discuss them with Native Americans, which made it more interesting. Highly recommended.

We spent about 1 1/2 hours here. It was interesting with various totem poles and wooden houses where the indiginous people lived , with individual totem poles outside their property to warn off strangers. You could easily get around in less than an hour though.
