The 11-metre Healing Totem, dedicated to residential school survivors and their communities, faces the Yukon River. The pole was carved by a group of young carvers from the Northern Cultural Expressions Society under the guidance of master carver Wayne Price of Haines, Alaska. In November 2012 the piece was carried to the site and raised by hand. The Wharf also features Fire Fighter, a bronze statue by Susan Velder.
