Totem Poles and Dream Catchers

Students are finishing their Dream Catchers, some have already finished. Those who are not finished should conclude their projects this week.

Totem Poles

Totem poles are sculptures carved from large trees, such as the Western Red Cedar. In North America, totem poles are part of the cultures of many indigenous of Alaska, British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest. Totem poles serve many purposes beyond their beauty, and their meanings are as varied as the cultures that make them.

Some totem poles represent stories or important events. On these poles, each figure on the totem represents part of a story. These totems are used as a way to record the history and legends of the tribes.

Figures on a totem pole are not gods to be worshiped. Instead, they represent traits and characteristics each clan or story embodies.

There are many other types of totem poles. Genealogy poles are erected in front of a family’s home to represent the owner’s clan or social status. Memorial poles are carved in honor of a deceased clan member. Mortuary poles are also raised in honor of the dead and include a small compartment for the ashes of the deceased.

Students will find the spirit animal that represents each member of their family at https://www.legendsofamerica.com/na-totems/ to create their totem poles. They will be using markers as a medium.
