Totem

It's not much of a trick to find totem poles around Vancouver. This one is at UBC.

Totems all over Lotusville???? You never told me that. I"m a tad of a totem pole fan. Yes, REALLY!! I always taught a NW tribe to my third graders and we loved all the wonderful tlhings they crafted from wood. We have one that is not painted here in our museum. Love this shot today, W!

Interesting. I wouldn't think of Vancouver as a Totem-loving town.

Yes indeed. Saw them in Northern Washington as well. I'll show my ignorance (as if it could be hidden) and say they were carved by the native american tribes in that area? Isn't Seattle a native am. name.
