Totem Pole Raising at Donovan & Company 

November 2003 

Donovan & Company was honoured to host a totem pole raising and blessing in November 2003.  Representatives from various First Nations communities, including chiefs, Elders and performers honoured Donovan & Company by attending the totem pole raising and blessing.

Charles Joseph, a residential school survivor, carved the totem pole.  The totem pole represents a mother embracing her son after her son has returned from residential school.  This very distinct and unique totem pole proudly stands in the office of Donovan & Company and welcomes all of our visitors.
