Main Street's New Totem Pole Includes Tourist


Carver Jim Heaton with a section of his latest creation, a 20-foot totem depicting the Sheldon Museum and local history. It includes the image of a tourist in a canoe, wearing an Alaska T-shirt. It's included in the pole to signify the importance of the Chilkat Valley as a trade route, Heaton said. The pole is part of a new sign for the museum. An unveiling of the pole set for Saturday, Aug. 22 has been postponed for additional work on its concrete base. Tom Morphet photo.
