Totem pole carver Mungo Martin at Thunderbird Park

The Story


In 1955, CBC Newsmagazine cameras pay a visit to Victoria's Thunderbird Park, an outdoor museum and classroom which students regularly visit to see and learn stories about totem poles. Master carver Mungo Martin is observed at work on one of the many totem poles he has created to replace lost and decaying ones. With him are his son David and grandson Tony Hunt.
