History of Winnipeg Beach Totem Pole: Anishinaabe

Here stands a tribute to the aboriginal people of Manitoba. What was once a 6-foot thick, 30-foot cedar log from Campbell River, British Columbia, no stands as a symbol of brotherhood in Winnipeg Beach, Manitoba.

This creation by wood carver, Peter “Wolf” Toth, began on Canada Day, July 1, 1991 (the 125th year of Canadian Confederation) and was ceremoniously unveiled on September 1, 1991.

This is the 67th carving in a long trail of Whispering Giants that started in 1970 and now reaches throughout most of North America.
In creator Peter “Wolf” Toth’s words, “My monuments are made to remind people of the contributions of the Indians of this country. Statues to honor the plight of the Native Peoples of North America.”

The town of Winnipeg Beach and the Province of Manitoba Parks Branch have co-operated to locate this magnificent woodcarving for all to see. May it become a symbol of brotherhood and unity for all who pass this way.

History of Winnipeg Beach Water Tower

The Water Tower along the shore of Winnipeg Beach Provincial Recreation Area is prominent visual landmark in and around the beach community. In early 1900’s, this 40m (130ft) high tower supported a 90,000-litre capacity tank and provided a source of pressurized water for the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) steam locomotives and fire protection services for the resort’s facilities. This water tower is no longer operational and is the best example of only five surviving riveted-steel water towers in Manitoba.
