Wayne Price uses an adz Wednesday to add texture to the new totem pole that he carved for Thunder Mountain High School. The name of the totem is "Our Auntie's Totem" and depicts an aunt, students climbing the river of life and a falcon on top. The falcon is the school's mascot. Price, a master carver from Haines, has spent the past year working on the totem. Students from the school helped paint it. There will be a traditional Tlingit ceremony for the unveiling of the totem Saturday after it is completed and installed at the school.
