1. Totem Pole #11 - Finish, Secure, Paint and Install


    from Beth Erez Added 52 0 0

    It has been a very arduous process sculpting Totem Pole #11, but with an extremely rewarding result. The Totem Pole is 3-4 meters high (almost 10 feet) and will be at least 1-2 meter (3-6 feet) higher once we create a base and install it on location. The Totem Pole is composed of three sections of wood (logs) separated by found metal sculptures – each sculpture representing another aspect of society and a symbolic bird at the peak made of brushed aluminum. It took us many sessions to design each of the sculptures, to create them, and then to build them in a manner such that they would be safe for all to view. We are now looking for assistance from the Indiegogo family and would be grateful if we could raise enough funds to complete and install this sculpture quickly and securely.

              from Lucas Boutilier Added 15 0 0

              Since overseeing the delivery of The Mathias/Sunwapta Totem last fall to the Royal Alberta Museum (RAM), I have been in occasional contact with them to observe their progress and research. In April of this year, I was asked to write a letter to the Edmonton Community Foundation in support of a grant proposal by The Friends of The Royal Alberta Museum Society. This letter was co-signed by two of my co-conspirators in this venture, Al Thompson and Alan Mabee. Today, I am very happy to report that a grant from The Foundation has been awarded to the Conservation Project, in the sum of $24,000. This is in addition to the $3210.00 the donor group provided to the Conservation Fund last November. This is, to say the least, a massive boost to those who have worked hard to get it this far and re-enforces the high regard The RAM, The Friends Society and Edmonton Community Foundation have for this heritage project. www.ECFoundation.org

                from Kathy Dye Added 81 0 0

                Kooteeyaa: The Travels and Travails of a Tlingit Totem Pole From Tuxican (Takjik’aan), Prince of Wales Island in Southeast Alaska. A lecture by Dr. Stephen J. Langdon Professor Emeritus, Department of Anthropology, University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA). In 1931, famed Hollywood actor John Barrymore traveled on a 120-foot yacht to the unoccupied Tlingit village of Tajik’aan on Prince of Wales Island. Under his direction, the crew stole a prominent pole, one of the few remaining in the village and transported it back to California. Dr. Steve J. Langdon, anthropologist from UAA, discusses the pole, its theft, its subsequent travels and trophy display in Hollywood on the estates of Barrymore and later that of fellow actor Vincent Price, followed by its incongruous transfer to the Honolulu Museum of Art in 1982. He also talks about current efforts by the Klawock Cooperative Association (IRA government of Tajik’aan descendants) to repatriate the pole.

                    • Eagle and Raven Totem Poles Raised


                      from Kathy Dye Added 272 0 0

                      Time lapse video showing two Eagle and Raven totem poles raised in Indian Village in Juneau on Sept. 29, 2014. It also shows the installation of a screen. The poles were carved to honor the Tlingit Auk Kwáan clans and long term residents of Indian Village. The Village Eagle and Raven clans along with Sealaska Heritage Institute (SHI) and the Tlingit and Haida Regional Housing Authority (THRHA) sponsored the event. The totems replaced two Eagle and Raven poles at Gajaa Hit that had deteriorated to the point they posed safety issues. SHI and the Housing Authority worked closely with the Auk Kwáan and other residents of the village to identify the clan crests and oral traditions that were carved on the poles. The Auk Kwáan and village residents appointed village residents to serve as proxy carvers representing the Raven and Eagle clans. Carvers Joe and TJ Young made the poles with Master Carver Nathan Jackson and Ed Kuntz providing advice on the designs. The apprentices included Josh Yates, Jerrod Galanin and Tai'-Rel Osh Lang-Edenshaw. The team also made a new screen, which was installed on the building earlier. The original 26-foot poles were carved and painted by Tommy Jimmie, Sr., Edward Kunz, Sr., Edward Kunz, Jr., and William Smith in 1977 to honor the Raven and Eagle Clans of the Auk Kwáan. The Raven pole is a copy of a totem from Wrangell carved by William Ukas in 1896. The original screen was designed by Tommy Jimmie, Sr., and painted by Ed Kunz, Sr., and Ed Kunz, Jr. The old poles and screen are being kept in storage. This project was funded by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Our Town program; the Rasmuson Foundation, the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council and the Juneau Community Foundation. Sealaska donated the logs, and the Tlingit Haida Regional Housing Authority paid for the apprentices and provided construction staff and equipment for the dismounting of the old screen and poles and mounting of the new screen and poles. The project was led by SHI in partnership with the housing authority, which owns Gajaa Hit. (Video by Brian Wallace)
