“ Daughter of Fog”, © Ray Troll, 1988

 This drawing depicts the Chief Johnson (AKA Kajuk) totem pole located at the mouth of Ketchikan Creek in Ketchikan, Alaska. The pole tells the story of  the tumultuous marriage between Raven and Fog Woman and the creation of salmon. It was originally carved in in 1901 for the Ganaxadi Tlingit of the Raven moiety of the Tanta Kwan (Tongass) tribe. A replica was carved by master carver Israel Shotridge in 1989 and now stands where the original pole stood. When the pole was raised in October of 1989 posters of this drawing were given out at the potlatch.
