  • 1. Totem Poles Art of the Pacific Northwest Natives
  • 2. What is a totem pole? • A totem pole is a piece of artwork that was originally created by the Native Americans of the Pacific Northwest.
  • 3. What is a totem pole? • Totem poles were carved out of giant cedar trees by the Northwest Coastal Indians. • A totem pole is kind of like a book you could read, but instead of using words it uses symbols of animals/birds. • Totem poles were used as a way of passing down stories.
  • 4. What is a totem pole? • Totem poles were used to represent a tribe, clan, family, or person. • Having a totem pole was a great honor and often families would trade all their possessions to have one.
  • 5. How were they carved? • After a tree was cut down, carvers would begin at the top and work their way down. • A totem pole could be big or small. A large totem pole might be more than 60 feet high and could take two to three years to carve! • Once carved, poles were painted with natural paints and were most often black, red, blue, green, and white.
  • 6. Your totem pole piece • Together we will create a set of class totem poles! • Each student will select an animal that they think best represents themselves. • They will create a stylized drawing of the animal, and then paint their own piece of the pole!
