This was one of the highlights of our visit to Ketchikan. We found the performers and hosts to be both interesting and authentic. Very nice people and we were glad we could support them by attending.

This area you can see them cutting totem poles and see some of the oldest totems poles in the area. It was great hearing the history of the area from the tour guide.
