“Interesting cultural stories”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Would have liked time to talk to the chief, but our tour guide and dance member was very informative. Also spoke with two of the other performers about the history. As part native myself it was an honor that they invited us to sing and dance with them.

“Entertaining & informative”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Stumbled upon this show while looking through the first building upon arriving in Icy Point Strait via cruise ship. Show was reasonably priced & well worth it. The tribal members did a fantastic job in telling the stories of their ancestors. Seating is indoors on padded benches. Would highly recommend this show to everyone of all ages.

“Interesting history”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

We enjoyed the tram ride and the history. Our tour guide was a native of the tribe from there and she was very informative and the tribal dance later was great they gave us robes to dance with and I blended in and looked just like them.
The only down fall was after the tour all the shops were closed thank goodness we could go back to the ship.

“Learning About Other Culture”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 via mobile

A good way to learn about the Tlingit Culture. It is 45 minutes well spent. E end of the show is includes the audience. This is a fun time for the whole family and a good way for children to learn about other cultures.

“Educational and entertaining.”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

Authentic Tglingit dance and historical presentation. A must for understanding the people of the area. You can take photos before and after the presentation. You will have a chance to participate in the dance ( photos allowed). If you want to learn about the people, then this is a must.
