This is one of the totems in the "Council of Clans," a circle of 6 totem figures located near the main entrance to the Cape Fox Lodge in Kethchikan. The Council of Clans was created and carved by Lee Wallace. This figure is known as the Naa Kaani pole. He is wearing a traditional button blanket and holds a speaking staff. Speaking staffs were used at potlaches where the person holding the staff had the authority to mediate and bring order to the festivities.
