Historical photo: A proud tradition paddling

Posted: October 12, 2012 - 12:03am
SEALASKA HERITAGE INSTITUTE / LINN A. FORREST PHOTOGRAPH COLLECTION
This photograph shows a Tlingit carved long boat full of paddlers with Chief Shakes VII standing in front. The photographer is unknown, but the photo is from 1940. Chief Shakes VII, also known as Charlie Jones, was arrested in 1922 for voting, a right associated with citizenship not granted for another two years. The name “Shakes” — originally Wiisheyksh — comes from a battle fought on canoes generations before.
