Education

Ages 16 to 17
Before viewing, have students research totem poles and similar artefacts. After viewing, students may examine totems in pop culture (e.g., logos, iPhones) and/or create personal totems. Have media and film students ask: who is the intended audience? how has this film contributed to the return of the pole? how can documentaries nurture tolerance in a diverse society? Students can debate museums' rights to the cultural artefacts of others.
