Saxman Native Totem Park

In the late 1930's the Civilian Conservation Corps and the U.S. Forest Service retrieved and restored totem poles from abandoned village sites. This resulted with Saxman being one of several Native communities in Southeast Alaska with a totem park. The 24 totem poles in the Saxman Native Totem Park came from ancestral villages at Cape Fox and Tongass Island, Cat Island, and Pennock Island. This is the largest totem park in the world. A few of the totem poles can be seen by clicking on the link below.
