Some of our Big Things To See in Canada are simply too Big to imagine how they were built! The World’s Tallest Totem Pole is one of them — 52.7 metres (173 feet) tall, and it’s located in Alert Bay, British Columbia, Canada. It’s just amazing!
Totem poles are aboriginal art, an ancient practice of carving that is handed down through the generations of the First Nations. A totem pole preserves history, heritage, and also honors local native tribal rituals and spirits.
