Hi folks,

My third grade is studying the northwest indians, and I've been asked by
their classroom teacher to participate. Do any of you have background
information on totem poles? I envision looking at reproductions of totems,
then discussing the images, the symbolism, and the cultures. I'm also
looking for ideas for how to make totem poles. I'd like them to use the
totem pole format to illustrate or symbolize their own cultures.

Suggestions are welcomed.

Thanks,

Mark
