This pole is a model of the Tlingit Kiks.adi totem pole of Wrangell, Alaska, probably dating to the 1930s. The original pole belongs to the Kiks.adi (Raven/Frog clan) of the Tlingit people of Southeast Alaska and adjacent British Columbia and Yukon Territory in Canada. The humanoid head at the top of the pole with the pontificated hat is a personified glacier and the totem tells an important clan story. 9"
