Ceramic Totem Poles

A Some of my students are interested in making garden totems this semester. We briefly discussed the meaning of "totem".

Definition from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

1 a: an object (as an animal or plant) serving as the emblem of a family or clan and often as a reminder of its ancestry.

According to Native American tradition, each individual is connected with nine different animals that will accompany each person through life, acting as guides. Different animal guides come in and out of our lives depending on the direction that we are headed and the tasks that need to be completed along our journey.
