  • Bear
    Bears were held in great respect by the Coastal Indians because of their humanlike qualities. Bears that had been killed were taken to the chief's house and treated like guests. Prayers and dances were made to the soul of the bear so that harm would not later befall the hunters. The bear motif is often found carved and painted on totem poles and used in many other art works.
