I live and write on Lingít Aaní, and gratefully acknowledge the past, present and future caretakers of this beautiful place, the Jilkaat Kwaan and Jilkoot Kwaan.

The seven Haines wrestlers made it to Anchorage for the state tourney this evening on Alaska Airline’s “milk run”– Juneau, Sitka, Yakutat, Anchorage– Some of the parents are there, too. (Well, at least one who confirmed this for me.) I thought you’d like to know. ( I’m smiling.)– The meet begins in the morning. Go Glacier Bears!
