The Life Story of a Totem Pole – Pender Is. Library
Nov 25 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Sunday Afternoon at the Pender Island Library presents:

The Life Story of a Totem Pole, with Hans Tammemagi

Sunday, Nov. 25, 2 pm.

Our talk this month tells the life story of a cultural icon: the totem pole. All of us on the West Coast have seen and admired totem poles.  Artistically carved monuments with symbolic and stylized representations of animals, birds, fish and people both real and supernatural, they are iconic and a vital part of Indigenous art and culture.  Writer and photographer Hans Tammemagi will describe his experience watching the creation of a beautiful 25-foot pole from the start to final raising, introducing the master carvers, how they worked and carved, and the figures on the pole documenting stories and family histories. Hans will also describe his other experiences with Indigenous peoples through his career.

Free admission, refreshments by donation. Come early, seating is limited.
