    Pioneer Place Totem Pole In 1899, some of the town's leading citizens added a totem pole, which they had stolen from a Tlingit village while returning from a "goodwill cruise" to Alaska. The original was scorched by an arsonist in 1938, and legend has it that when the city tried to buy a new pole, the Tlingits thanked Seattle for "paying for the first one." Actually, the U.S. Forest Service underwrote the replacement pole, which was carved by native craftsmen Charles and William Brown.
