Vancouver really is one of the greatest cities in the world to live in or visit. It's also home to many award-winning aboriginal artists.

Aboriginal artwork, carvings and totem poles can be seen at galleries and museums in Vancouver. Travellers can see these artists' work standing in various locations. In some cases, visitors can even see these artists at work outdoors or in their studios around the city.

In this Destination BC video, we join artist Luke Parnell for an afternoon in the Aboriginal Gathering Place at Emily Carr University on Granville Island as he completes a house pole for the school.

From traditional to contemporary, aboriginal artists in British Columbia represent over 50 First Nations in more than 200 communities.
