Regular price $152.00

The Legend of Mankind: hand carved yellow cedar. 
This totem represents the origin of mankind as the natives have told it through the generations.  Elders tell their grandchildren of how the first man emerged from a clam shell, looking around at this new, strange world. The first living thing they saw was the raven, which has been respected throughout native history.  Raven appears in many native stories, and is pictured on this totem pole as yet another representation of this great bird.
