Potlatch Totem Park, Ketchikan

(4.4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Potlatch Totem Park hosts the most visible of native cultures with its authentically built tribal house, walls deeply carved inside and out, giving tribute to the major tribal ancestry of the area. Here you will look upon Raven, Eagle, Thunderbird, decked-out in cedar regalia, Wolves and Killer Whales. Not to mention the majestic 42' totem pole honoring Raven, who released the sun into the world.

Peer into one of the tribal homes to see the diorama of how Native Alaskans actually lived in the 1800s. You can then take a walk up to the Carving Center where you can view the carving in action! You'll even get a chance to meet one of the resident carvers and talk with them about the art.

  • It is a quiet peaceful 1/2 walk during the winter. Took some current pictures. I have been bringing people here for 15 years when they visit. My favorite tourist location.  more »
  • Great place to visit got a lot of history which was very interesting, lots of totem poles telling lots of stories!  more »
  • A small park at some distance from the town of Kenchikjana-so here it is better to go by car. In the Park just a few totems, but they are in good condition and very colorful. In October there were no tourists at all-so it was very comfortable, all calmly.
