Sitka Tribe celebrates totem pole unveiling

For the Sitka Tribe of Alaska (STA), hope comes in the shape of a brightly-painted 12-foot red cedar totem pole dedicated to peace. The Tribe unveiled the pole last weekend in honor of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Mounted in front of STA’s Healing House. It stands for the lessons of the past and the community’s best hopes for the future.
