Dr. Richard Feldman's recounts his 10-year research journey that solved the mystery of the missing totem pole from the Brady Collection of Sitka National Historical Park.

FlyerThis seminar recounts Dr. Feldman's ten-year research journey that solved the mystery of the missing totem pole from the Brady Collection of Sitka National Historical Park. The Brady Collection of totem poles is one of the most famous and studied collections in the world, and the fate of the pole remained a mystery to historians for 90 years.

 

The talk takes the audience to the Indianapolis neighborhood of Golden Hill,  to the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair, to a remote island Indian village in Southeast Alaska, and finally to the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis for a traditional pole raising of an exact replica of the original pole. Solving this mystery and tracing the pole to its original Native Alaskan family was a true modern-day adventure. Dr. Feldman invites the audience to share in that adventure! The research has been the subject of two scholarly articles, a PBS documentary, and the book Home Before The Raven Caws.

 

Southwest Seminars offers weekly lectures, 50 weeks a year for the past nearly 20 years with local and regional and sometimes national scholars in the fields of archaeology, history, Native culture and natural and environmental sciences, sometimes art programs. There is a $12 fee for the events.

 

The programs are attended by 100-120 local folks every week in a friendly casual setting. We now recommend folks come early to get a good seat…or sometimes just to get a seat at all. Not a stuffy academic audience…lots of friend making going on.
