Alaska Native Traditions offers an educational experience for tour groups, conventions, college students, and educators. Guests learn about some of the many customs and traditions of First Alaskans.
Alaska Native Traditions provides multiple services including coordination with First Alaskans dance groups, elder presentations, and educational workshops.
Guests of Alaska Native Traditions get a glimpse of the rich Native heritage of southeast Alaska through an intimate look at the Tlingit ancient ways. Guests learn the intriguing story of the Tlingit who have been described as having a highly sophisticated social structure and multi-faceted way-of-life. Tailored group presentations provide fascinating insight and introduction to the two main groups of Tlingit society, Eagles and Ravens, and their family structure.
Tailored group presentations allow Tlingit elders to share stories from their people’s long history of life in a land that is abundant. Historically, the Tlingit depended on nature for their food, clothing and tools. Today some of the beautiful and elaborate Tlingit regalia are made the same traditional way.
Guests see stunning examples of magnificent beaded ceremonial clothing and headgear and through a tailored presentation learn about traditional ways of preserving food. A hands-on presentation invites guests to understand how Tlingit delicacies, like herring roe and dried seaweed is prepared. Tlingit elders enjoy sharing their heritage with visitors and welcome questions.
