Kitwancool BC

 

The village of Kitwancool (Gitanyow) is the site of many ancient, impressive totem poles. The famous Canadian painter Emily Carr captured the striking majesty of many of these poles after a visit to the area in 1928. “Hole-in-the-Ice” is the oldest standing totem pole in the world. Carving sheds, a graveyard and a community smokehouse also occupy this site, a living museum of totem carving.
