Photo: Moving indoors for the winter

Posted: Friday, October 22, 2010

Employees of the U.S. Forest Service and the Alaska State Museum discuss restoration of the Yak-te Totem pole at the Auke Village Recreation Area on Thursday. The pole is suffering from rot and insect damage. With the help of AEL&P, the pole will be taken down for the winter for restoration work. The pole is the work of Tlingit carver Frank St. Clair of Hoonah and two local carvers employed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1941.
