In this pilot film, we follow Master carver and indigenous Alaskan artist Wayne Price as he 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. 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.
The Local is a Royal Caribbean original series, celebrating people from around the world, their unique passions and their culture.
For the premiere season, we highlight three locals from Alaska: Wayne Price, Mary Smith and Dan Oberlatz.
