Totem Pole Raising - August 7th 2011

It was a beautiful sunny day in Gitaus on August 7th 2011 for a pole raising that marks the last in a series to be raised at the Canyon Development site (at least for some time).  The raising of the Dog Salmon Crest Pole brought in a number of spectators eager to participate as in previous years.  Held as part of the annual Riverboat Days celebration the event was the perfect grand finale to the weeklong festivities in Terrace.  After the pole was raised and the story of the pole relayed by Web Bennett, the crowd was treated to a salmon BBQ.
