Totem poles are sculptures carved from large trees, such as the Western Red Cedar. In North America, totem poles are part of the cultures of many indigenous peoples of Alaska, British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest.

Carved out of large, straight-trunked red cedar trees and painted with vivid colors, the totem pole is representative of Northwest Coast Indigenous cultures and art forms. Totem pole a natural object or animal believed by a particular society to have spiritual significance and adopted by it as an emblem.
