Panoramic view of Lummi totem at cemetery

The Washington Post has a panoramic view of the totem pole the Lummi Nation installed in Washington, D.C.

Jewell Praying Wolf James carved a series of poles after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. They were installed in New York and Pennsylvania, two of the crash sites, and at the Pentagon, another site.

The one at the Pentagon was dedicated during the opening week of the National Museum of the American Indian in September 2004. It was moved to the historic Congressional cemetery and is to be moved to the September 11 Memorial Grove on Kingman Island.

For now, the pole remains at the cemetery. Click on the link to view the pole and its surroundings.
