Book Description

The author describes the origin and place of totem poles in Native culture - as ancestral emblems, as expressions of wealth and power, as ceremonial objects, as mythological symbols, and as magnificent artistic works of the Pacific Northwest. She also suggests ways to interpret the motifs and symbols carved on the poles and shows how one can recognize the special features that reveal not only the skill of the carver but also his or her tribal origin.
