Photo: Totem Pole Old Masset

A close up of a totem pole in Old Masset in the Queen Charlotte Islands in British Columbia, Canada.

Each carving on this totem pole represents a significant piece of culture for the Haida Indians in Old Masset on Graham Island in British Columbia, Canada. Some of the finest native carvers reside in Old Masset which is home to about 700 Haida people.The Haida people respect their privacy and their traditions and culture are taken very seriously. Carving a totem pole is an artwork that is well thought out before beginning and it can be an extremely time consuming hobby but the finished projects are incredible.Each totem pole tells a fascinating story and there are common figures that are used in the creation of each totem. Bears, eagles, ravens, beavers, mountain goats, thunderbirds, whales, frogs and wolves are some of the frequent animals you will see carved on a totem pole.The Queen Charlotte Islands in British Columbia, Canada is accessible by water or air and you will find Old Masset near the north coast of Graham Island. ... continue below the picture...
