The bear is always treated as a high-ranking guest among the natives and adorns many totem poles. It is believed that bears have the power to take their skins off and appear as human beings do. Most of the time, however, they prefer their own form. Bears symbolize teaching, motherhood and friendship, often shown smiling.
