Add To Plan

Immerse yourself in the enthralling culture of the Huna Tlingit by watching a moving performance of Indian song, dance and storytelling.

Meet at the theater in the Heritage Center in Hoonah to watch a wonderfully entertaining performance by the Huna Tlingit that describes how the wilds of southeastern Alaska have shaped the tribe over the millennia. The Huna Tlingit have lived here for countless generations and much of their heritage has been passed down through oral history and legends, which come to life in the theater.

Performing and dancing in their colorful full regalia, the Huna Tlingit entertainers will share their history from the time when advancing glaciers forced them out of their original homeland in Glacier Bay. They called their new settlement Hoonah, which translates as "where the north wind doesn't blow," and they lived here in communal long houses or clan houses.

With their rich history of harvesting resources from the sea and land, the Huna Tlingit have always had great respect for the environment. Many of their performances express the significance of indigenous animals such as the raven, seal and eagle. Others tell of the Indians' struggles with the harsh environment and poignant social issues. It's an amazing and highly revealing performance that is truly unforgettable.

Following the performance you are free to return to the ship or further explore on your own.
