A vital part of any tour of the city, Duncan Totem Poles represent and honor the native Cowichan Tribe. Erected in the 1980s and numbering around 80, these ornate, colorful wooden totem poles each represent an allegorical part of the tribe's traditions, including the chiefs, nature, wealth, and family. Take a self-guided walking tour of the totems starting at the railway station (or any point, really), following the yellow footprints on the sidewalk that lead the way.
