Mr Monkey in Seattle, 4th February

"It's a bit blatant, propping stolen property up in a public square"

On his way down to the ferry terminal Mr Monkey went through Pioneer Place. He paused to look at the Tlingit totem pole and the 1909 pergola, which was built as a trolley shelter and the entrance to an underground restroom. The totem pole is a replica of the one stolen from the Tinglit village of Tongass. Unusually, the original was erected in honour of a woman, Chief-Of-All-Women, who drowned visiting her sick sister.
