Item:163730674630Duncan, City of Totems Click images to enlarge Description Duncan, City of Totems, 1990, by Jat Connolly, softcover, published by the City of Duncan, 40 pages. Vancouver Island, British Columbia From the First Page in the book ----- The Cowichan Valley, traditional home of the Cowichan people, provided a natural bounty of food and shelter, as well as a Mediterranean-like climate with mild winters and hot, sunny summers. In fact, Cowichan means "basking in the sun". Nestled in the heart of the Cowichan Valley, the City of Duncan is only one mile square but it serves as the trading centre for a regional population of more than 55,000. This thriving community began as a townsite laid out adjacent to the railway station on William Duncan's farm in the 1880s. Originally named Alderlea, the new townsite was part of the Municipality of North Cowichan until 1912, when it was incorporated as the City of Duncan. Duncan today is a community where modern shops, services and amenities flourish side by side with the traditions of Native culture. This is perhaps best demonstrated by the designation of Duncan as the City of Totems and the development of the Native Heritage Centre. Each year since 1986, more totem poles have been carved and raised in Duncan. So it is that a tradition from the past has created a new tradition in Duncan for residents and visitors alike.
