An Intimate Connection to Our Lands
Haa Aaní, Haa Kusteeyí
The Tlingit people have a very strong historic, cultural, linguistic & spiritual connection to their land.
Deeply Embedded Culture & Tradition
Our practiced customs and traditional ceremonies validate our identity and culture – which were passed down through generations with pride and dignity.
Our Way of Life
We have a lengthy history of reliance on our habitat – subsisting off of the abundant Alaskan Wildlife.
The distinctive art of the Tingit is reflective of their culture, ancestry, and collaborative histories.
Respect for Nature
