Free Printable Native American Indian Totem Pole Crafts

When I was six, my father, mother and I moved to Haines, Alaska. We lived with a clan of the Tlingit Native American Indians. I was adopted into the tribe and my Tlingit name is Dok-du-Yik. I totally enjoyed the cultural immersion experience. I fondly remember the many lovely people I met. Whenever I see Pacific Northwest native designs, I think of my time in Alaska. Totem poles are particularly evocative.

Totem poles play an important ceremonial role in Pacific Northwest American Indian tribes like the Tlinget. and Chilkat that I lived with. They're part of the Kwakiutl, Haida and Tsimshian tradition, too. Autumn always reminds me of my time with my native friends. As a teacher and homeschool parent, I explored Native American culture in fall units. Here are free printable totem pole design templates. Free Printable Native American Indian Totem Pole Designs and Crafts
