Totem Child

Taking advantage of the mild climate and abundant natural resources, the indigenous peoples of the northwest Pacific Coast developed cultures with remarkable artistic, ceremonial and social characteristics. When I see their creations I often feel like this child portrayed on a totem next to the Royal BC Museum in downtown Victoria. In the photo below you can see the totem where it stands in front of a traditional native long house that has been constructed on the museum grounds

Thanks for the excellent post, Ben. Thanks too for stopping by with your comments. I like your idea about suggesting on the forum that street musicians be used for theme day sometime.
