8-26-2016 Totem Bight

Totem poles
once thought to have religious significance
are now understood to be
pictorial story books of these early civilizations
that did not yet have a written language.
The pictures on the totems
helped them maintain their oral traditions
and tell their stories to the next generations.




Leaving the clan house story time.

I found it all very fascinating!!!
