University of Northern Colorado facilities workers carefully lower a Tlingit Bear Clan Totem, known by UNC alumni as "Totem Teddy," from its mount in the University Center, Monday, Oct. 20, 2003. Members of the Tlingit Nation of Angoon, Alaska, celebrated the return of the Bear Clan Totem, once known as "Totem Teddy" on the University of Northern Colorado campus, and a Bear Clan headdress returned by the Logan Museum of Anthropology at Beloit College. The Bear Clan Totem disappeared from Angoon in 1908 and reappeared in 1914 as a gift to UNC from U.S. Commissioner of Education for Alaska Andrew Thompson, an 1897 UNC alumnus.
