Native American Totem Pole

Learning Objectives:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of the Totem Poles in Native American cultures
  • Identify own personal story or family crest using a Totem Pole
  • Produce a Native American totem and refer to visuals to inspire their own versions of totem animals
  • Present story and Totem Pole to the class

Totem Poles are like family trees to us, by using animal figures. They are also a way of recording legends. They had no formal language so they are like our books. Northwest Indians constructed and carved totem poles depicting the animals that represented their family. Several animal allies were stacked up, carved, and painted onto a long log, which was erected in the village to remind their tribe of the important connection that the animal spirits had to the generations of their family members.

Students will construct their own story in a Totem Pole. When finished, they will share their story and Totem Pole with the class.
