CRM: The Journal of Heritage Stewardship (Summer 2005)


Cover image: A photographer captured this team of Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) carvers repairing a Tlinglit totem pole at Sitka National Monument, now Sitka National Historic Park, in Alaska sometime between 1938 and 1942. The cedar pole, a story pole called the Raven/Shark Pole, was obtained from the former village of Tuxekan in 1903 and shipped to St. Louis, Missouri, for the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition. The pole then traveled to Portland, Oregon, for the 1905 Lewis and Clark Exposition, and arrived in Sitka in 1906. The pole was completely recarved in the 1970s so that the stories and heritage it represented would endure for future generations.
