Totems Pitted Against Explorers

Totems and riches are more associated between each other than what we would superficially appreciate most of the times. 

From an anthropological view, a totem is considered as a mark or signal of a taboo; among the Indians of the Yukon and Alaska, the totems are like coats of arms of clans, families and tribes. They tell a story and portray important symbols much like European heraldics, albeit with their own cultural, religious and traditional undertones.
