Native American information

Wooden poles carved with protective spirit symbols

They are also embellished with mystic carvings appertaining to clansmanship.

The word ‘totem’ was first used in 1781 by an Englishman called Long who lived among the Algonquin tribe and became an interpreter. He then wrote a travel book in which the secrets of totemism were revealed.
