Lots of information here that I collected from our trip. A couple of sources: Juneau, Icy Strait Point & Hoonah, Ketchikan, Vancouver museums. Totems are actually Genealogy statements, not religious icons.
Adze – a cutting tool somewhat like an axe dates back to the stone age. The older ones used in Alaska would have been bone or stone, later metal.
The tools on the left are from the Vancouver Museum of Anthropology
The tools in the middle and right are modern and used by the guy in the video
