In 1911, the town of Terrace, British Columbia was founded by George Little. Yvonne Moen is a historian who has lived in Terrace since 1959. She has written, co-authored and published a number of books about the history of Terrace. In this episode, we get a look at her story, but we also learn about what makes up the town's cultural identity. A major factor of that includes the unique First Nations art form of carving totem poles, which provide the region an individuality and uniqueness unlike any other.
