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.

Hi Tiffany. On our indigenous TV station I have seen the current carvers at work and it is satisfying to know that the tradition is alive despite the history of dispossession and persecution of the First Nations.Their art style reminds me of the Ainus, the tribal people of Japan who also held the bear in reverence. Nice to see this sort of photo on TE. Regards. Klaudio.

What a great heritage, I am learning so much from your narratives of a well crafted and composed image providing us with much interest and enjoyment. Given the conditions, shutter speeds and view point, you have done a fab job in capturing the great specimen of the tribal woodwork with exceptional amount of detail - it takes time to look at this - so much to see. Beautiful warm interior and you did an excellent job with the exposure, lots of atmosphere captured too. It's a wonderful insight into the way it is. Great capture, Congrats
