#5. To see Totem poles and learn about the culture.
The best place to see totem poles is in Ketchikan. There are over 80 you can see by taking a tour or just by walking around town.
These are all original Native American totem poles which show the symbols of the clan they belong to. These are NOT religious symbols but rather they tell stories and honor their heritage.
I saw many from the Tlingit tribe.
Stop by the Saxman Native Village or Totem Bight State Park. Do not miss learning about their culture!
It is very interesting.
