The evidence of Native Alaskans is everywhere in Ketchikan, from a colorfully painted city bus to Chief Johnson’s Totem Pole at the center of town.

Ketchikan boasts the largest number of totem poles in Alaska, a collection that includes recently carved poles and some that are more than 100 years old. The Totem Heritage Center, which offers classes in Native arts, houses a large collection of Native artifacts, including several ancient totem poles, cedar bark baskets, beaded regalia, button robes, and other beautifully hand-crafted works of art.
