Hoonah is many things in a small package: A lively fishing community, an old logging town and the world's largest Tlingit village. Your local guide will describe how this coastal community came to be when the rapid glacial advance of the Little Ice Age forced the clans from their ancestral home in Glacier Bay. Learn about the feats of local fishermen, what it's like to drive on the Alaska Marine Highway, and how the people rebuilt when the village was destroyed by fire during WWII. Check out a pair of Tlingit totem poles and learn how to read them. Don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for the animal representatives of the two Tlingit moieties keeping watch over town - Ravens and Eagles!
