Artist's Description

This totem pole is in Suquamish, Washington near the grave of Chief Seattle. Seattle, or Sealth, was Chief to the Suquamish and Duwamish tribes. Even “Sealth” was an approximation of his actual name as the early white settlers could not correctly pronounce his name. The word “Seattle” is a word that over time came into usage but was never his true name. Each August in Suquamish is a three day festival of canoe racing, salmon bakes, dances that have been kept alive for many generations and drumming. Suquamish is on the banks of Puget Sound on the Kitsap Peninsula with mighty views of Seattle, the city, Mt. Ranier and the rugged Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges.
