In 1993 the Tlingit tribes and clans convened a landmark conference in Haines, Alaska, which brought Native peoples from Alaska and Canada together with scholars of their language, history, and culture to exchange information and develop a collaborative agenda for future research and policy initiatives. This volume represents the fruits of that unique exchange and collaboration. It includes original contributions by Native and non-Native scholars alike on a variety of key topics, including Tlingit historiography, migrations, warfare, kinship and property tenure, language and literacy, ethnogeography and cultural resource management, subsistence, and naming. Bridging past and future, this source book fills an important niche in the literature and is designed especially to be accessible to all students of Tlingit culture.
