Skundaal is a carver. She is Haida and Coast Salish.
She is carving a special totem pole. The log is 980 years old.
It will honour survivors from the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver.
A survivor is someone who has had a difficult life but has remained strong.
The totem pole will be raised in Fall 2014. There will be a great ceremony.
It will be a symbol for community and strength.
Money is being raised for the project. People can donate money to help. You can also donate on the website.
