Join this exclusive experience that includes a hands-on Native crafts session, a culinary tasting, and a guided tour of Saxman Native Village.
Learn about Tlingit form-line drawing as a local artist shows you how to design your own native ornament. Select from a bear, raven, eagle, or salmon template and paint them using authentic colors.
Treat your taste buds as you learn about Alaskan ingredients and their uses in a modern cooking environment. This food tasting enhances your culinary knowledge and expands your palate with true Alaskan elements. Start with an Alaska-style charcuterie board prepared with smoked, wild game meats, artisan cheeses and fruits. The chef selects two additional courses. Watch and marvel as the chef goes through the ingredients and demonstrates the techniques used for preparing one of the dishes. All these items pair deliciously with local wine and beer included.
Discover a cultural showcase of Alaska Native art, clothing, and tools. Some of these artifacts include traditional hand-carved pieces by Master Carver Nathan Jackson and other items from the original Village of Cape Fox.
Your local tour host will teach you Tlingit customs, traditions, and stories of the Elders as they guide you through the exhibits and totem park. The highlight will be watching the Cape Fox dancers perform a playlist of Tlingit songs and dances in the Beaver Clan House.
Please note: Wear comfortable walking shoes. Dress in layers with a warm, waterproof outer layer. Tour sequence may vary.
