Meet your tour group at the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe’s 7 Cedars Casino and jump onto a bus for a guided tour of their renowned totem poles. Your host will give an “up-close” view of the poles, explaining the historical figures and legends that inspired their designs. You will learn about the “Founding Fathers” of the Jamestown Tribe, discover why the S’Klallam are called the “Strong People,” and why the wolf is so well respected. The numerous stories and folk talks of these carved columns will be revealed to you. The tour also includes a visit to the “House of Myths,” known locally as the “carving shed,” where the totem poles are created. Limited to 14 participants.
