Scope and Contents of the Materials

The recordings in this collection were donated to the Sealaska Heritage Institute in 2013 by and in partnership with the Alaska Native Language Archive (ANLA) of University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), which holds the originals. This donation and partnership occurred for mutual benefit and to better document the content of these language recordings.

The recordings in this collection range in date and content, and contain speaking in the Tlingit and Haida languages. The collection has been organized into two Series; Series I: Haida Language Recordings; Series II: Tlingit Language Recordings. An item list within each series of each recording is provided in the inventory, and the ANLA #s have been retained for tracking purposes and as call numbers. Original ANLA content description for recordings has been retained, but enhanced in some cases. These recordings are captured as audio files on DVDs.

In 2013 through an IMLS Enhancement Grant, SHI was able to employ fluent speakers of the Tlingit language to review certain recordings in this collection. This work was conducted by elders David Katzeek (Tlingit name Kingeistí, Shangukeidí clan) and Paul Marks (Tlingit name Kinkaduneek, Lukaax.ádi clan). For the recordings reviewed by these fluent speakers, notation of their review is explained by use of their initials, including “DK” and “PM”. Their review notes have been placed within the folders and in proximity to the recordings reviewed to assist future researchers.

Note: Most of these recordings (at the time this find aid was created) were available online to the public via the ANLA’s website.

In particular, he makes an appeal to document Tlingit history, especially regarding the land. He expresses concern with acculturation and loss of knowledge of traditions, and comments ‘It’s only right that it be put on paper.’ Thus, the only ‘stories’ are often set in a larger narrative context, or may inspire the tradition bearers to continue the narration on other topics.” 15:20 – 31:10: Clan migration and history. 31:25 – 46:40: Willie Marks—Kéet Yaanaayí tells the history of Naatsilanéi.

A bunch of Kooshdaa (land otters) came.  They were making noise around the boat.  Eventually the Kooshdaa took the oars of a man.  One Kooshdaa took an oar and placed it next to where he sat, and the man knew it was his brother.  Someone yelled on shore so they went to shore to see.  After they came ashore they ate lunch on the beach, fishing for salmon.
