Place names book wins library association award

Posted: April 25, 2013 - 12:03am

The Alaska Library Association has given Tom Thornton its annual Alaskana Award for “Haa Léelk’w Hás Aaní Saax’ú: Our Grandparents’ Names on the Land,” which was published by Sealaska Heritage Institute last year with the University of Washington Press.

The award honors outstanding works that make a significant contribution to the understanding of Alaska.

“Haa Léelk’w Hás Aaní Saax’ú: Our Grandparents’ Names on the Land” documents more than 3,000 Native place names and their locations in Southeast Alaska. It was compiled by Thornton in collaboration with hundreds of people, including area tribes and Elders, with major contributions by Harold Martin.
