Ketchikan welcomes all each season. Hospitality is offered to visitors at the Tlingit presentations in Saxman Village and Totem Park. According to DK Eyewitness Travel Alaska, " The Tlingit were a seafaring people, and their traders traveled as far as present-day Washington State in huge ocean-going canoes hewn from single cedar logs. Like the Haida, Tsimshian, and other Northwest Coast cultures, the Tlingit carved totem poles to commemorate the culture unique to their respective clans. Pole-raisings and memorial ceremonies were accompanied by grand feasts called potlatches."
