Jilkaat Kwaan Cultural Heritage Center

Chilkat Indian Village
Klukwan, AK

Klukwan, a small, ancient, Alaska Native community positioned on the north bank of the Chilkat River in Southeast Alaska, is one of the last continuously inhabited Tlingit villages in the region. The Portico Group is proud to have assisted the village in master planning, design and documentation for the Jilkaat Kwaan Bald Eagle Observatory and Cultural Heritage Center. The first phase of this project is the new Hospitality House where guests will be served native foods and see exquisite art while touring the Traditional Knowledge Camp and the Village. The second phase is the Cultural Heritage Center, a repository for traditional crafts and ancient sacred objects, providing public access to these internationally known works of art.
