Cape Fox Cultural Foundation
When you visit Alaska, you want a truly unique experience. You want to know the Alaska way of life. One of the best first stops on your trip should be the Southeast Alaska Discovery Center. Take a guided hike with a Forest Service employee through the Tongass Forest, where you get expert knowledge on the animals, birds, and plants found there. Or take a step back in time and visit a re-created native fishing village to see how the native Tlingit lived. There are also four main interactive exhibits to see on the coastal rainforest and ecosystem, Alaska Native cultures, other ecosystems of Southeast Alaska, and modern human uses of natural resources. Finally, you can end your tour by visiting the exhibit honoring Elizabeth Peratrovich, a Tlingit civil rights leader, or watch a movie in the Elizabeth Peratrovich theatre.
Before leaving, do not forget to stop by the Cape Fox Cultural Foundation and gift shop. Cape Fox Corporation, in partnership with S.E. Alaska Discovery Center, offers a place where everyone can learn, experience, and shop while being part of the vibrant native cultures of the region. The Cultural Foundation is a place to see many different aspects of art and experience Ketchikan’s legacy in person. Visitors can watch local artists at work with the chance to ask the artist about their pieces and their culture. The art combines traditional heritage with modern art.
Cape Fox Cultural Foundation has three main missions:
- To deliver educational and cultural services to the public in order to preserve and support the heritage, culture, and future of the Cape Fox community and Southeast Alaska region.
- To provide unique, focused programs and services to help disadvantaged or struggling members of the Southeast Alaska region become thriving members of their families, communities, and society in a whole, and
- To encourage charitable and educational activity that has a purpose.
