Right in the middle of Hoonah is the truly unique experience of seeing local Tlingit carvers at work and getting some insight into their culture. Watch them carve totem poles and learn the purpose of these gorgeous works of art. You’ll also find many beautiful totem poles, as well as murals painted by locals, all around Hoonah. Check them out at the school, city hall, the Hoonah Indian Association office, and even in a creek near the carving shed.
The carvers work in an outdoor area on Garteeni Highway where it intersects with Harbor Drive.
