David Boxley describes the meaning of the totem pole for his family and people.  He was brought up under the influence of  Christian missionaries. Once a teacher, he then decided to create and tell stories through totem poles allowing him to express his Tsimshian identity and heritage. Watch him carve and decorate totem poles from red cedar wood with knives, chisels and sandpaper.

The Sheka Forest Listening Comprehension Resource

The Sheka Forest Story - Wisdom from the Past, Resilience for the Future

The Sheka Forest Story shows the power of collaboration.
The Sheka forest is one of Ethiopia's largest and last remaining tropical forests. Clan leaders, the local community and the local government have come together with the support of local partner, Melca Ethiopia, to help secure the future of the forest, its rich bio-cultural diversity and to enhance sustainable livelihood options.
The story tells an enchanting tale of the complexities of forest governance at a time when it has never been more critical.
"It takes everyone to protect a forest. It only takes a few to destroy it".
A film made with partner Melca Ethiopia. More about Melca Ethiopia here 

This resource is a video listening task. Components of the lesson are loaded on the TEFL Communicative Resources ready to go.  The teacher's key and student sheet can be downloaded and printed from that page.
