Stories the Totems Tell  

This .pdf document, available from Indian and Northern Affairs Canada, explains what totem poles are. The document is written for kids, and includes illustrations. Once they understand what totem poles are and what they're for, kids are encouraged to design their own to represent their own family and history.
