Description

Polychromed carved alaskan red cedar, 50’x4’6".

While wandering around Pioneer Square, you’ve probably seen the 50-foot carved cedar Seattle Totem Pole standing in the southwest corner of Pioneer Place Park. The totem was created in Alaska in 1940 by native carvers of the Kyan and Kinninook Indian families.

The pole was part of a Civilian Conservation Corps project to replace one that had been originally in place there since 1899.
