Your journey through the rich history and culture of the original inhabitants of Glacier Bay begins with an enjoyable bus ride through the largest Tlingit settlement in Alaska. Your local guide will describe how the village came to be when the Huna Tlingit were forced from their ancestral lands in Glacier Bay by advancing glaciers. With plenty of photo-stop opportunities throughout the tour, this truly is a wonderful glimpse into the past. Then, head to the Native Heritage Center Theater for a lively performance from the Huna Tlingit, who proudly share their history with you through interpretive song, dance and storytelling. Dressed in colorful regalia, their performance will illustrate the ancient significance of many clans, the story of how a mighty glacier forced the Tlingit from their traditional homeland, and of how Raven created the world.
