Royal Caribbean launched a new original video series that seeks to celebrate the peoples of the world in The Local.

The idea behind The Local is to showcase people from around the world, their unique passions and their culture.

The first season focuses on three locals from Alaska.  In episode one, 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.  

Royal Caribbean has released three episodes to begin with, and all three episodes are available to watch on YouTube.

Episode 1: The Master Carver

Epsidoe 2: The Culinary Connector

Episode 3: The Explorer
