Career reflection: Students learn about the cultural significance of different carved poles in Haíɫzaqv culture, including the Watchmen poles. Then, they write about the knowledge, skills and values that a watchman must have.

Teaching tip:
Show Indigenous people as appropriate role models for learners to connect with.

Alert:
Many images belong to particular people, nations, families, or clans. Don’t use designs, symbols or crests without permission. Please note that the colours of Haíɫzaqv poles are culturally significant, protected knowledge. Please do not colour in the images of the poles.
