Raising the totem..

This past weekend I had the privilege to go to the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh for the unveiling of their new Tlingit totem pole The Hunt.  Carved by Tommy Joseph.  This summer when I was in Alaska I had the chance to meet Tommy Joseph at his shop in Sitka and we talked about the totem he would be carving for the museum.  So it was great to get there and see him unveil the finished project!

 This is Tommy telling the story of The Hunt and about working on the pole!

And this is a close up of Raven on the bottom of the pole!
