I was really disappointed in the Saxman Native Village. We took a cab to Saxman because we didn't want to wait for the bus and I never book tours through the cruise line since we can always do more things for less money on our own. We went got to the village we paid $5 each to view the totems. The booklet that actually explains the totems is another $1 per booklet. That should be included in the $5 fee. We walked around the area which is really just a courtyard sized space and read the story of each totem. Some of the stories were interesting but these totems are replicas or were made in the past 20 years or so.
I learned much more about totems at the Totem Heritage Center which was the same price per person but had much older totems and much more background on totems as a whole.
