A 15-minute walk east from the cruise-ship docks is Totem Heritage Center, where totem poles brought from deserted Tlingit and Haida communities are kept to prevent further deterioration. Inside the center, 17 totems are on display in an almost spiritual setting that shows the reverence Alaska Natives attach to them. More are erected outside, and the entire center is shrouded in pines and serenaded by the gurgling Ketchikan Creek.
