    In the 1990s, a Raven totem was raised at the University of Alaska Southeast. But there was a problem. "We have to have both an Eagle and Raven pole to have social and spiritual balance," said Rosita Worl, president of the Native nonprofit Sealaska Heritage Institute. In 2009, the institute managed a project to carve an Eagle pole to balance the Raven. Watch the video to meet the carvers Joe and TJ Young and the Native students who helped make it happen.
