  • The Yaakw Kahidi Cultural Center aims to maintain the culture of the Hoonah tribes and tell their historic story to visitors like us. The growing cultural center is welcoming and personable. The elders will tell you of their story and location amongst the First Nation's tribes of the Pacific North West. You can see examples of their wood carving for totems and canoes and beautiful artwork. This year they have introduced a new selection of merchandise (T-shorts, sweatshirts) which are great quality (we bought a few) and the proceeds go towards the community. All the people here were super friendly and we walked away knowing a lot more about Hoonah and the tribe than we could have learnt from a book. It is free to enter and well worth a visit.
