The centuries since my ancestors first settled here have brought great change to this majestic landscape and the people who relied upon it for shelter and nourishment.
Powerful forces have shaped us both.
Something that did not and would not change, is the spiritual connection my people have with this natural world, this “waterway of life.”
It is a bond felt to this day among the Huna Tlingit – a people who walk in two very different worlds.
Long before there were written records of Glacier Bay, there were stories, our stories -- the stories of the Huna Tlingit.
Early accounts tell of this land, as it once was -- grasslands, forests and rivers teeming with all that was needed to live and thrive.
This was my ancestor’s world until someone angered the spirit of the glacier, causing it to advance – moving “as fast as a dog could run” – forever altering the landscape and obliterating the clan houses and homes of the Huna Tlingit.
The clans separated, in search of a place that could compare to the richness of the land from which they had been forced to flee. They reunited in present-day Hoonah, staying close to their ancestral home, confident it would be freed from the ice that imprisoned it so that one day they could return.
As they waited, they sang to their spiritual home across the water: “We are patient, land of our grandfathers. We will wait. We are a patient people. You are worth it”
They took solace in their memories, song, and dance, continuing their traditional lifestyle and practices.
The Tlingit have a well-developed social structure that serves as the foundation of and supports the perpetuation of our culture.
Our society is comprised of two moieties, each group identified by its crest – the ch’áak’ and yéil, eagle and raven. A Tlingit is born Eagle or Raven, following the lineage of the mother. Within each group are clans. And within the clans, are houses comprised of extended family groups.
