Quote: "My dad is from Kake, mom from Klawock. We practiced subsistence within the villages. Being able to trace the ancestors back four or five generations, I'm proud of our history. Tlingit people were sophisticated. ... I hope that we can continue to pass our traditions to our children and grandchildren."
