Author to speak about nineteenth century encounters in Chilkat country
Daniel Lee Henry will give a lecture on Tuesday, Nov. 17, on nineteenth century encounters between Natives and non-Natives in Chilkat country.
The talk is part of a brown-bag lecture series sponsored by Sealaska Heritage Institute to celebrate Native American Month.
Henry is an award-winning author, teacher, and journalist based in the Haines area. He has recorded numerous oral histories of Chilkat/Chilkoot Tlingit Elders and is currently working on a rhetorical history of land use confrontation in the communities of the Northern Lynn Canal.
The lecture is scheduled from noon-1 pm in the 4th floor boardroom in the Sealaska building in Juneau. It's open to the public and free of charge.
