Collection Historical Note

The 2007 Clan Conference, held in Sitka, Alaska, with the theme “Sharing Our Knowledge,” was a conference that allowed presenters to discuss aspects of Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian history and culture. At the 2007 conference there were approximately 145 sessions or presentations, all of which were recorded and later sold for educational purposes. Previous conferences were held at Haines and Klukwan (1993), Sitka (1995), Ketchikan (1996), and Sitka (1997). A subsequent conference was held in Juneau in 2009 and there are plans to have additional conferences. The conference was funded by the National Science Foundation, Southeast Alaska Native Educators Association, and the Sitka Tribe of Alaska.
