British Columbian Haida artist Bill Reid, jeweller and wood carver, works on a totem pole in the Haida Indian tradition. The film shows the gradual transformation of a bare cedar trunk into a richly carved pole, a gift from the artist to the people of Skidegate, Queen Charlotte Islands. Particularly moving is the raising of the pole by the villagers, as Bill Reid stands by.
