It’s a beautiful morning here at Walt Disney World Resort and we’re kicking off the week on the Disney Parks Blog with this lovely sunrise shot snapped at the Canada Pavilion at Epcot.

One of the most striking features of the pavilion are the storytelling totem poles, with each one representing a different cultural tale popular among tribes of Southeast Alaska. Two new ones – an Eagle Totem Pole and a Whale Totem Pole – were carved by Tsimshian artisan David Boxley and installed in the pavilion earlier this year. For more details on the stories each of those depict, click here.

  • Jennifer – don’t the totem poles represent parts of northern Canada as well since they are located in the Canada pavilion?

  • I agree with Kristy. The same tribes extend into Northern British Columbia, but the wording should have reflected that instead of Alaska.

  • I wish Canada had a quick service. Every other country has one.

  • I am sorry but I have to ask… if this is the Canadian Pavilion why are you representing Southeast Alaskan tribes and not Canadian ones?
