We’re so thrilled to announce that our collaboration with the Vancouver School Board is complete as the installation of the 3 totem poles went without a hitch on Monday!
A 44-foot-tall reconciliation pole, alongside 2 welcoming poles were officially installed on the grounds of Vancouver School Board’s headquarters as a symbol of reconciliation and of knowledge that transcends generations.
This project was one that Klondike had never undertaken before and we feel honoured to be a part of a venture that that recognizes the relationship between the diverse Indigenous community and Vancouver citizens. These poles serve as a reminder of the board’s connection to the First Peoples: the Musqueam Nation whose unceded lands the building reside on as well as, the surrounding Nations of the Tsleil-Waututh and Squamish Coast Salish peoples. National Geographic was also on hand to document the event; as soon as we know more, we’ll feature it here!
