Ketchikan's history and heritage come alive as you tour Alaska's First City. Learn about the Totem Heritage Center's efforts to preserve traditional art forms such as basket making, beadwork and carving.
We did a short tour around town then went to the cultural centre where we were shown totem poles. The guide had a great knowledge and there were some really old ones there. We actually were allowed in the archives to visit the ones they are trying to protect and preserve. The weather was awful, torrential rain so made it hard to enjoy the outing.
