TOTEM POLES

Share This Page

Some interesting facts about totem poles: Indian tribes of the Pacific Northeast Coast—Washington state in the USA, British Columbia in Canada, and some tribes in Alaska shared in an ancient tradition of totem poles.   Totem poles may depict legends, historic persons or clan lineages.  Vertical order of the images denoted the importance of the representation.  The higher on the totem pole, the more significance; of less importance and further down comes the  ”Low man on the Totem Pole.” Directions for this project, “Native American Totem Pole,” can be found in the 4th Grade Projects Gallery in the sidebar.
