Totem Heritage Center
Now we move indoors to the Totem Heritage Center, which preserves endangered poles, mostly from abandoned sites. Half a dozen rescued totems greet you as you enter the door. The picture on the left shows two of them. Below is a bear figure on the top of one of the totems.
The museum also preserves and promotes other native crafts. To the right is one of the fantastic Tlingit masks in the museum’s collection. Below is an artwork depicting the story of how Raven stole the sun and hung it in the sky, giving light to the world.
