S'Klallam totem tour

Participants will get up-close views of the poles while learning about the historical figures and legends that inspired their designs, the tribe's founders, why the S'Klallam are called the "Strong People" and why the wolf is so well respected.

The tour includes a visit to the House of Myths where the totem poles are created. Visitors may see the carving team in action and observe and ask about tools and techniques that transform an old-growth cedar log into a monumental work of art.

Advance reservations are required, 25 participants per tour. Call Eric Adams for reservations at 681-4606. Payment may be made by check (mailed to Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe, Attn. Eric Adams, 1033 Old Blyn Highway, Sequim, WA 98382) or in cash on the day of the tour.
