"We decided that this pole told the story of the Bear Mother, kidnapped by a young bear chief (who of course assumed human form when he reached his home and removed his shaggy coat), of their marriage and the twin, half-human cubs she bore, and of the sacrificial death of the Bear Father so the twins could be returned to their human kindred and become the first ancestors of the bear clan."

Bill Reid, "Totem."
