Seattle, Washington, Totem Pole in Pioneer Square, c1905

A 60-foot totem pole first appeared in Seattle�s Pioneer Square in 1899, presented as a gift by members of the Chamber of Commerce, who had stolen it from a Tlingit village in Alaska. The tribe sued for theft, and won; but punishment was miniscule and the city was allowed to retain ownership of the pole. The pole was later vandalized and replaced with a replica carved by the tribe�s descendants in an act of good will.
