Kispiox Totem Poles

There are approximately 24 totem poles that are privately owned by House Groups, which stand in the grass at the edge of the community where the Kispiox and Skeena Rivers meet.  Some date as far back as 1880, or are as recent at 1995. 

Carved with Eagle, Raven, Frog, Killer Whale, Wolf and human figures, they commemorate the House/Family history, signify ownership, and offer insight into the heritage of the Gitxsan people.
