Komo News By Kiersten Throndsen, Nov 21, 2013
SEATTLE - For more than 70 years a pole stood watch over a Boy Scout park in Freeport, Ill. This pole shared a story, carved in wood, of a Native American culture to those who visited the park until it was removed.
And, now the Burke Museum wants to bring this story pole - created by in the Northwest by Snohomish Tribe leader William Shelton -- home.
