ANCHORAGE, Alaska —

An Alaska Native village corporation that operates a popular cruise ship destination has launched a commercial consulting service for others seeking help developing their own cultural tourism ventures.

Huna Totem Corp. opened Alaska Native Voices on Wednesday. Huna Totem is the village Native corporation for Hoonah, a largely Tlingit community of 775 in southeast Alaska.

The corporation is entering the 10th year of operating its Icy Strait Point. The long-closed salmon cannery near Hoonah was converted to a tourism complex with a lengthy list of offerings including Tlingit heritage performances and nearby attractions such as nature tram rides, whale watching tours and a mile-long zipline.

Alaska Native Voices director Mark McKernan says the new consulting service is offered to Native groups as well as communities worldwide.
