Totem Poles by Phillip Harley I (Karen Lynch Harley)

Traditionally made primarily by Northwestern Indian Tribes. However, Totem poles were found in the Jamestown area of Virginia and served a variety of purposes. Totem poles had spiritual significance for some Southeastern tribes and were considered spiritual guardians. Totem poles symbolize Tribes, Clans, family or individuals. Often animals are used to symbolize the wisdom and power or characteristics they offer.
