Today I was fortunate to experience a tour of one of Canada's national historic tours of the Kitselas Canyon! This is located about 10 minutes outside of Terrace; and here is where we were welcomed to the land of the "People of the Canyon".
We were able to observe the carving of a very special totem pole which tells a story of the history of the Kitselas people. When this pole is completed, it will be one of the most prestigious poles to be raised within the last hundred years!
After watching the carvers at work, we were able to view some of the traditional longhouses that are in the progress of being completed. Inside these houses we were able to learn alot of history of the people and we were also able to take a look at many artifacts.
The very last activity on the tour was the trolley ride through the old forest to the view point at the canyon! This was an awesome experience that you definately should look into when you come to the Terrace area because you will not be disappointed!
