Ketchikan is five hundred miles north of Seattle. It is accessible by the Alaska Marine Highway or Alaska Air Lines. Located on Revillagigedo Island it is Alaska’s “first city,” and as the first or last port of call for all Southeast Alaska cruise ships. The historic downtown, wedged between water and forested mountains, becomes saturated in summer with cruise ship passengers, independent travelers and seasonal workers. The town is built into steep hills and partly propped on wooden pilings, with boardwalks, wooden staircases and totem poles dotted throughout. By 1886, white settlers had opened the first of dozens of salmon canneries. It soon became known as the “Salmon Capital of the World.” Ketchikan is named after Ketchikan Creek, which flows through the town. The word comes from the Tlingit name for the creek, Kitschk-hin, the meaning of which is unclear. It may mean “the river belonging to Kitschk”. Other accounts say it means “Thundering Wings of an Eagle”. The Island has the world’s largest collection of standing totem poles and internationally known totem carvers.
You can see the Totems at Saxman Village, Totem Bight State Park, Potlatch Park, the Totem Heritage Center and throughout the city.
