The Family pole was carved in 1993 by Francis Horne, Sr. It is 6.1m (20’2″) and stands at the intersection of Kenneth Street and Jubilee Street in downtown Duncan.
The Family was commissioned in 1993 by the Painter and Gendemann families, who, at that time, owned businesses in downtown Duncan.
Carver Francis Horne, Sr. says of The Family,
“The pole represents family. It could be anyone’s but in this case it is the Painter’s. The Painters owned Duncan Electronics and were a family business. I wanted the pole to represent them as a family, not just business owners. The top figure is an Eagle, which represents the Eagle clan. The Eagle is holding a baby Eagle. The Father is holding his son (bottom figures).”
