Saving the Tlingit clan houses
Tlingit clan houses are both physical structures and important traditional entities encompassing family, ceremony, and connectedness.

In Sitka, Alaska, clan houses are slowly disappearing, caught between Tlingit custom and conventional legal constraints. But now there’s new hope on the horizon with the repatriation of one of the properties in Sitka.

The effort is reviving awareness and the possibility of finding solutions to preserve these important cultural touchstones. Friday on Native America Calling, Shawn Spruce meets those who are repatriating and reviving.
