Duncan, City of Totems, 3-D View-Master Reels, 2007

Quote from - www.vancouver-island-adventures.com/City-of-Duncan.html

"Continuing north on the highway, the city of Duncan (about 40 minutes north of Victoria) sits in the bowl of the Cowichan Valley, populated with almost 5,000 people. This is a really diverse valley region rich with farms, vineyards, forests and lakes.

Known as the "City of Totems," Duncan is a good place to visit if you want to find out about the history of totem poles. About 80 unique hand-carved cedar totem poles are on display downtown, in the city parks, and along the main highway.

These are totem pole designs that originate with the Salish Indians of coastal British Columbia. Each totem pole is unique, representing a family-clan, its dignity, its accomplishments, it prestige, its adventures, and its stories. A totem pole served, in essence, as the emblem of a family or clan."
