Indian story pole decaying at Capitol in Olympia

Olympia, Washington (AP) September 2010

Barriers have been placed around a decaying 71-foot story pole on the Capitol Campus in Olympia while state officials decide whether it will be removed or restored.

The Olympian reports the pole was carved by Native artists in the 1930s. It has been renovated five times, most recently in 1997.

Consultants assessed the pole last week and will make a recommendation to the state Department of General Administration. Spokesman Jim Erskine says it will work with Northwest tribes to determine the fate of the pole.

The cedar pole features 21 figures, each telling a story.
