Totem poles and Night Life in the City 

The little borough of Sitka was first inhabited by the Tlingit tribe, who were said to have lived here over 10,000 years ago. In 1905, the Governor was tasked with decorating the Sitka park for a national exhibition which is how Sitka came to have a national park displaying a large collection of totem poles. These were gifts from the Pacific Northwest tribes, who donated these to share their culture with the people of Alaska. How I do love these!
