Aboriginal Pictures

The totem poles featured in the photos on John Weston’s website are found at Brockton Point, in Stanley Park. The City of Vancouver website declares these to be British Columbia’s “most visited tourist attraction”. The site describes the acquisition of the totem poles by the Vancouver Parks Board from Vancouver Island’s Alert Bay, Haida Gwaii, and the BC Central Coast Rivers Inlet. The site states that the “ninth and most recent totem pole, carved by Roberty Yelton of the Squamish Nation, was added to Brockton Point in 2009.http://vancouver.ca/parks-recreation-culture/totems-and-first-nations-art.aspx Photos of the totems on our site are courtesy of Peak to Peak Marketing, who helped design the site.
