The Local, a Royal Caribbean original series, celebrates people from around the world, their unique passions and their culture. In our premier season, we highlight three locals from Alaska.
Episode 1: Master carver and artist Wayne Price creates fine art in the traditional style of the Tlingit people. Wayne’s artistic creations cover a broad range of design and artifacts, including totem poles, dugout canoes, masks, paddles, clan hats and jewelry. Wayne works with local youth to pass on the craft and culture of the Tlingit people.
In this episode of The Local, Wayne takes us on a journey as he builds an adze, a traditional Tlingit wood-carving tool used by his ancestors for thousands of years.
