Individual Immunity Totems are most often rewarded after the point in the game where the remaining players on all tribes are merged into one team. At this juncture, players play challenges only to for IITs. Seldomly, more than one IIT has been rewarded in one challenge.
At the elimination phase, players who have IITs cannot have their name written down and therefore cannot be eliminated. All IITs are used at the subsequent Tribal Sacrifice after it was earned. A player may give an IIT away at any point, but not after the votes have been cast, and they may not give it to a player on another team.
In 2010 (The Temptations), a rules twist changed these normal rules: the player with individual immunity could not vote or take part of the temptation unless they gave their immunity to another player or sacrificed the Totem to Kokopelli prior to voting.
There have been 54 total Individual Immunity Totems. (2007: 11, 2008: 7, 2009: 4, 2010: 11, 2011: 7, 2012: 14)

Totems Earned not in Immunity ChallengesEdit
Occassionaly, IITs have been rewarded outside of individual immunity challenges. These totems, even though not all earned through challenges, are still considered in that player's total totem wins.
|When Earned||How Totem was Earned||Player(s)||Season|
|Purchase at Blind Auction||One IIT was sold to the highest bidder during a Blind Auction.||Ema||2008|
|Purchase at Blind Auction||One IIT was sold to the highest bidder during a Blind Auction.||Ken||2009|
|Prize for Reward Challenge||Three IITs were given away to the players who completed the intial challenge (as well as school yard pick choice for initial teams).||Mike U., Tricia, and Melissa||2010|
|Prize for Reward Challenge||Two IITs were given away as a reward for the tribe swap challenge (as well as school yard pick choice for new teams.)||Tim N. and John||2010|
|Prize for Coyote's (Reward) Challenge||On the first night, two IITs were given away for those players who could balance the longest. Players were given the chance to steal these immunity necklaces in the next three challenges, but no player took advantage of this.||Jim and Pete||2012|
|Additional prize for Team Immunity Challenge||On the second day, the Ghosts came back as a team and were given one shot to steal immunity from the players in the game. If they got first place, they would vote two players back in the game. If they got second, place, one player back into the game. Those players would then enter the game with an IIT that would be good at the next elimination round.||Jim and Abbey||2012|
