Saxman Native Village Tour
Saxman Native Village and experience the rich living culture of southeast Alaska's
Native Americans. Get an exclusive look at the fascinating culture of SE Alaska's
original inhabitants. The Tlingits welcome guests in the traditional style that
defines the culture of Southeast Alaska. A short video program introduces you
to the culture and history of Saxman. You will then enter the Beaver Clan House
where you are welcomed by song and dance by the Cape Fox Dance group. Visitors
are encouraged to participate in the final dance, before moving on to the Saxman
Totem Park, one of the largest gatherings of totems in the world. Your guide will
help unravel the mysteries of these towering, majestic poles. At the Village Carving
Center craftsmen pass on their skill to eager apprentices. Learn how modern day
carvers differ from their ancestors and learn of their current projects around
the world. Fine Alaska Native art and small mementos are for sale at the Native
Faces store. On the return trip, those who wish may be dropped off at the historic
Creek Street District.
Tour is wheelchair accessible
with a companion to assist. Cape Fox is the only tour operator that provides guests
with the opportunity to see the Cape Fox Dancers inside the Beaver Clan House
and visit with the carvers who work at Saxman.
