This is the time and place I first met Lelooska. Cub scout field trip. He was working on what would become the worlds tallest totem pole at the time. It still stands in Kalama by the river. 30 years later i took several classes from him.

He used to live in a house right in front of her hop fields in the late 1950s south of Hubbard Oregon on highway 99. I was in 6th & 7th grade. He had a totem pole going then too. I never found it strange. I guess I thought just everyone has a totem pole builder in the neighborhood. Didn’t know how lucky I was.

This is it! That’s the pic I was talking about being my favorite!

I remember seeing him working on that totem pole as I passed by on the freeway, oh so many years ago.

My parents brought me and my three brothers to see Lelooska working on the totem poles when I was ten years old.

We took field trips with the boys up there what a load of History and an exciting trip for the kids to see
