Additional Details:
The Natives of Alaska no longer adhere to their old custom of erecting totem poles. Keeping pace with the advance of civilization, they have sought employment and built homes among the settlements of the white man. Old Kassan is one of the few villages in which the totem poles are still intact and the old type of buildings have not given way to the modern structures.
