Native American Carvings & Totem Poles

Totem poles are carved and painted sculptures featuring designs that have spiritual significance to a specific family, clan, or tribe. Some totems were designed to watch over and protect while others showcased a family’s ancestry or social rank. Totem poles were specific to Northwest tribes such as the Tlingit, Haida, Bella Coola, Chinook, Tsimshian, and coastal Salish. Cisco’s collection of Native American totems features a variety of styles ranging in size from 8 inches to 16 feet.
