Not exactly "people," but a representation of the spirit of a person,
Historically, totems of the Pacific North West Native People were from individual families, and their exact meanings were understood only by the family.

I think you could apply some skin smoothing to this one to remove a few blemishes

That being said, I wonder what the meaning behind the sharpened upper teeth and the less sharpened lower teeth mean.

Thanks for commenting, guys.
Native Americans that lived in the Pacific NW suffered more from windburn than from sunburn.
My guess about the sharp teeth is that the artist/craftsman made them different without it having any particular symbolism. But then, I'm not a tribal family member.
