Antique cars are a side issue, but for a car buff - wow. Indian history of the totem poles fascinating, so well worth the visit

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.
