A little over a year ago, students at Seaside High School launched a unique tribal history course, with the goal to develop and install a 20 to 40-foot cedar pole on the roadside along the driveway between Pacific Ridge Elementary School, the high school and middle school.

Two cedar logs delivered by Weyerhaeuser are ready for pickup and delivery to carvers Guy Capoeman and Cecil Capoeman in Washington state. After the logs are finished curing, the Capoemans, known in the area for his welcome poles in the Pacific Northwest, will spend much of the next year working on the project, driven by input from Seaside students in the Native American history class led by Bill Westerholm and Kriste York.
