John T.

He was fatally shot by a Seattle police Officer while walking with a knife near downtown in 2010. In February 2012 a 34-foot John T. Williams Memorial Totem Pole was erected near Seattle's center at Fifth Avenue and Broad Street. His brother, who was one of the main carvers had this to say, "They took something beautiful; let's give Seattle something just as beautiful back".
