Jessica Chester, Tlingit Language and Culture specialist with the Juneau School Districts, demonstrates language teaching techniques during a workshop on curriculum development presented by the Goldbelt Heritage Foundation on Thursday afternoon, March 29, the first day of the Sharing Our Knowledge Conference in Sitka.

Wooshteen Kanaxhtulaneegí Haa At Wuskóowu (Sharing Our Knowledge): A Conference of Tlingit Tribes and Clans was held this past weekend in Sitka, drawing about 300 people.

The multidisciplinary conference, first held in 1993, is designed to bring together a wide range of people interested in Tlingit culture -- both Native and non-Native.

Topics for this year’s conference included “Tribal and Forest Service Cooperative Subsistence Fisheries Monitoring,” “Tlingit Identity in the Digital Age,” and “Glacial Retreat and the Cultural Landscape of Ice Floe Sealing at Yakutat Bay, Alaska.” The keynote speech was delivered by Marie Olson and Cyril George, Sr.

The event was recorded on video created with support from Alaska Department of Education and the University of Alaska. The video has not yet been made available to the public.
