This 65-foot-tall cedar totem pole was carved in 1982 by Norman Tait, a member of the Nishga Isimshian Native American tribe of the Pacific Northwest. The totem explains the ancestry of Tait's family, whose clan symbol is the beaver. Big Beaver was commissioned by the Field Museum to commemorate its Northwest Coast and Arctic People exhibits.
