Museums & Cultural Centers
Ah-Tah-Thi Ki Museum Store

Totem Pole Ornament

Totem Poles are made by the Native Americans of the Pacific Northwest. Carved from giant trees, each is a beautiful piece of artwork and tells a story. Consisting of animal “totems,” or symbols, standing upon each other, the poles also tell of the tribe’s status and history. So why a Totem Pole at a Seminole Museum?  In the early 20th century these distinctively Pacific Northwest icons appeared in Seminole tourist camps giving the tourists what they wanted, expected, to see from Native Americans. ($22.99)

Kolea and the King's Crown

Kolea, the beloved Pacific Golden Plover, once agian reveals a little known fact of Hawaiian History. In this book, we learn the secret of the Royal Crowns of Hawaii that are preserved in Honolulu’s Iolani Palace. Young readers will enjoy traveling with King Kalakaua on his historic 1881 World Tour. Although this story is based on historic accounts, Kolea takes some liberties where the facts are unknown, such as how the kukui nuts actually became part of the Royal Crowns. The typeface chosen to reflect the Victorian Era in which this story takes place. As in “Kolea and the Chief’s Cloak”, the author uses vocabulary designed to challenge readers ages 6 to 12. This beautifully illustrated book contains a strong message for any age, “An object’s true value is determined not by its rarity and brilliance, but by the contribution it makes to our lives.” ($16.95)
