Add To Plan

Immerse yourself in the Tlingit Indian culture by touring their largest settlement and watching a traditional dance performance.

Traveling from the pier, your excursion commences with a driving tour of Hoonah, the largest Tlingit Indian village in Alaska. Along the way, you will see and learn how the residents often travel from place to place on a ferry along the Alaska Marine Highway. At the harbor, located at the crossroads of Icy Strait and Glacier Bay, you'll discover how it was founded and how it transitioned over the years to accommodate cruise ships. You will also listen to some enthralling stories about the Tlingit, which are also told visually through the intricate carvings found on totem poles that are located at a local school.

Of course, for the ultimate insight into Tlingit culture, you will tour the Heritage Center at Icy Point Strait. Here, you will learn how the Huna Tlingets were forced from their ancestral lands around Glacier Bay by advancing glaciers, and how the epic fire of 1944 destroyed the village and altered the Tlingit's way of life. Still, the highlight is the interpretive performance by the Tlingit, who sing, dance and tell revealing stories about their culture over the centuries. During the performance, the dancers are dressed in full regalia, including masks and headdresses. It's a wonderful way to absorb the rich history of the Tlingits and appreciate their culture on an even deeper level.

After being treated to an enthralling performance, you may return to the ship.
