Sequim film maker wins honorable mention for Totem Pole short video

Congratulations to Cathy Prefrement of Sequim, who has just won an honorable mention from Videomaker Magazine for her short film (4 minutes) Totem Poles. The film documents Dale Faulstich  who has created over 44 totem poles over the last 25 years, primarily for the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe.  Yes, those are Dale’s poles you see out front of the tribal center and casino. Dale is captured making “Salmon Bringer”, with the narrative of how the salmon were brought to the People. It’s a story worth hearing to remind us of the relationship of the salmon to all of us.

Cathy wins a nice professional software editing package from Videomaker. Take a few minutes to view her film at:
