Native Arts Studies Program Instructor and Student Exhibit, 2019

The Totem Heritage Center serves as a cultural center for the artistic traditions of the Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian people. The Center's Native Arts Studies Program has offered classes in Northwest Coast arts including carving, basketry, weaving, and regalia making since 1976. Visiting and local instructors accomplished in the Northwest Coast Native style of art teach these classes to perpetuate and strengthen the traditional arts through their students.

Many of the students are continuing in a family tradition, and some have taken the skills learned at the Center and gone on to build successful careers as artists. In the true spirit of the Totem Heritage Center, many have returned to teach and help ensure the continuation of these cultural connections.
