Related Information: The Universal Totem was a gift to the EvCC students from the United Native American Council and the Circle of Friends. Artists Alex Paul Sr. and the Paul family, a well-known local Native American and multi-generational carving family who reside on the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community near La Conner, WA, oriented the totem pole facing east to honor the new day's sunrise and the spirits that live in the east. The totem was dedicated to the memory of Isabelle Paul, the Lady of the Dawn.
