Totem Poles and Their Stories
An introduction to totem poles which are an important part of
Northwest Indian culture. We explored the history of totem
poles, how they are made, provided some examples of totem
poles, their stories and the background of two carvers.
The educational objective is to provide a website that will
provide the viewer with a basic understanding of totem poles.
The viewer will understand how totem poles are made, why
Indian cultures created them, and to view examples of
authentic totem poles that can be found in the Pacific NW,
British Columbia and Alaska.
