A totem pole is a traditional Native American and First Nations monument or sculpture carved from large trees. Artists from the Pacific Northwest of North America typically use cedar wood to create these impressive sculptures. They carve various symbols and figures on them. These symbols and figures can represent animals, birds, supernatural beings, ancestral spirits, or mythological creatures. You will usually find these figures stacked on top of each other.
