Native American Totem Pole Given To Russians During Canada Russia Hockey Series

I watched the movie about the historic Canada Russia 1972 hockey series on TV last night and it was interesting to see that the Canadian team had brought over a Northwest Coast Native American totem pole that was about 6 feet tall as a gift to the Russians. I'm assuming that this was an accurate portrayal of what actually happened in 1972. I'm sure the Russians would have been completely baffled by what this totem pole was.
