Totem poles tell stories. The Chief Johnson totem pole, which is one of more than 80 totem poles in Ketchikan, tells the legend of the creation of Salmon. The original totem pole was raised in 1901 and is now on display in the Totem Heritage Center. This replica, carved by Tlingit artist Israel Shotridge, was raised in 1989.
