Walk last roughly 90 minutes with stops on fairly even terrain.
Supporting Indigenous communities and their art and stories has always been important to Alnoba founders Alan and Harriet Lewis. That’s why Alnoba is home to several thought-provoking and powerful pieces by Indigenous artists.
On this special tour, you’ll go deep into the meaning and significance of Alnoba’s two totem poles by Kwakwaka’wakw sculptor Calvin Hunt as well as our extensive collection of pieces by groundbreaking Apache sculptor and artist Allan Houser.
Houser’s works explore themes of Indigenous spirituality and wisdom. He was the first Indigenous American awarded the National Medal of Arts. His father was a relative of Geronimo, and his family was imprisoned along with other Apache resistance fighters in St. Augustine, Florida for twenty years. Alan was the first child in his family to be born outside captivity.
