Photographer's Note

Potlatch Park was built on the old fishing grounds of the Tlingit Natives of Southeast Alaska, just 10 miles north of the quaint Alaskan town of Ketchikan. Take an awe-inspiring trip back to the 19th century as you explore a fully recreated Native Alaskan village, including 5 tribal homes and beautifully carved totems.

Inside the park is a large Clan House (tribal house) with several smaller tribal houses alongside. Each tribal house has elaborate wall carvings both inside and out. The main Clan house (my picture shows) has four differently carved house posts, as well as a huge wall carving of a mother bear and her cub.
