Totem Pole

Totem Poles

Totem poles have been crafted out of red cedar trees for centuries.  The craftspeople who created these totem poles believed that the red cedar trees were from the Great Spirit. They used simple tools to create beautiful, detailed totem poles from these trees.  
Totem poles display brightly painted animal figures, or totems.  These include eagles, whales, grizzly bears, wolves, ravens, frogs, and halibut.  Totems are symbols that tell stories, celebrate important events, and preserve the history of native clans.  Totem poles have also been used as grave markers and monuments.
