Sealaska Heritage



A major source for Southeast Alaska Native culture and history.

Professional and amateur researchers alike look to us as a primary source for information about the Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian people of the Alaskan Panhandle. Whether you are simply curious or seriously scholarly, you will find an abundance of information in our archives and library, and through programs like our lecture series and visiting scholars. Looking for genealogical information? Check our resources page. Whatever your interest, the path to our peoples' past starts here.

Native people preserving traditional knowledge and practices.

Our culture, history and language programs (along with our language programs) are informed by our Council of Traditional Scholars, a panel of clan leaders and elders with extensive knowledge of Southeast Alaska Native cultures. We periodically assemble the council to provide guidance and insight on both new and existing programs.
