This richly illustrated book recounts the stories behind the magnificent totem poles and traditional houses on display in the Grand Hall at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. The stories that surround the human, animal and supernatural figures that appear on Native totem poles, in housefront paintings, and in sculptures are vividly retold and interpreted according to their symbolic meaning.

Six cultural groups are represented--the Coast Salish, Nuu-Chah-Nulth, Central Coast, Nuxalk, Haida, and Tsimshian. The book also describes an archaeological dig representing over 5,000 years of Native habitation, and illustrating many cultural traditions that continue toind expression in the modern world.
