A cultural canoe experience

On Tuesday afternoon a group of over 40 paddlers from Juneau, Yakutat, Sitka and Kake arrived for an overnight stay in Petersburg, after battling several days of high seas and rough weather. They were greeted in traditional fashion by members of ANB, ANS and PIA alongside other members of the Petersburg community. Wednesday the group continued on toward Wrangell for this weekend’s historic re-dedication of the Chief Shakes Tribal House.
