Pacheedaht first nation/nuu-chah-nulth totem

Item Number: A0111


This beautifully carved model totem pole features an eagle over a frog and killer whale. The eagle appears in much the same pose and fashion as a thunderbird would normally be depicted, but Gordon Peters, the carver of the pole, identified it as an eagle. A note on the back of the pole reads “Pacheenaht, Ptchina, San Juan Harbour, Port Renfrew, Canada. Bald Eagle caught the whale. Gordon’s story of his pole. June, 1978.” The wings of the eagle/thunderbird are pegged individually into the sides of the bird, creating a lot of movement and interest in the pose. The Pacheedaht are culturally and linguistically related to other Nuu-chah-nulth peoples but are not a member of the Nuu-chah-nulth Council. The Pacheedaht are very closely related to the Ditidaht and Makah peoples, and often host intercultural events with them. 17" H x 12"W
