The totem pole of Salford Quays

Salford’s Native American connection goes back to when Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show set up camp there. Of the 97 Sioux who were cast members at least one stayed in the city to start a family.

The pole itself was donated in 1969 and stood outside Furness House until 2005. It has now been tracked down and is to be restored and returned to the Quays.
