Totem Bight Historical Park


In 1938 the U.S. Forest Service hired older Native Alaskans to repair and rebuild the villages and totem poles that were abandoned decades before. The project salvaged the ancient works of art and representations of culture and allowed new artisans to gain carving skills. Now a model native village, the site is open to visitors with examples of the primitive tools, natural paints, cultural artwork, and a traditional clanhouse.
