  • Trader Legend Totem

    Currently standing in Alaska's Sitka National Historic Park, the Trader Legend Totem is a replica of a totem that originally stood in the Kaigani Haida village of Sukkwan near an old foot bridge across the Indian River. This replica was carved by local Native carvers during the 1938-1942 Civilian Conservation Corps project. At the top of this pole is a figure representing a white man with curly hair and a beard, perhaps representing a fur trader who cheated the Haida people. The next figure down is holding a shrimp in its mouth, a symbol said to represent a thief. Another symbol of thievery is the crab - the fourth figure from the top in an upside down position.
