In the following sections you will find a story told with photos of a totem pole being carved at Skidegate, Haida Gwaii. The pole is designed and carved by Guujaaw with assistance from Gwaii and Wayne Edenshaw.

There are three main figures on the pole -- the bottom figure is a bear, the middle a killer whale, and the top is a thunderbird. Between the bears legs is a bear cub, in the whales mouth is a seal, and a frog sits atop the thunderbird.
