A 16-foot-tall totem pole representing the Folletti family stands along the Chilkoot River below the Chilkoot Haven lodge. The Totem Trot Fun Run/Walk page explains: "From the base up, the pole depicts a frog (grandmother's clan), a raven with a halibut in its beak (Sue Folletti's father, a commercial halibut fisherman) and an eagle head in its wing (representing her mother), an eagle (Sue Folletti), three faces representing David, Mary, and Daniel Folletti, and at the top a figure of Fred Folletti flanked by Coho salmon (Fred was adopted into the Coho Raven clan by Lillian Hammond), and a Chilkat blanket. The pole originally stood in downtown Haines before being moved to the lodge."
