Tlingit musician's movie music inspired by tradition

SITKA, ALASKA This week “The Proposal” arrived at the Coliseum Theater. The film, starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, is set in Sitka, but most of it was shot in Rockport, Massachusetts. In fact, not much in the film comes from the real Sitka. But there are a few home-grown elements – including a Tlingit wedding chant, composed for Betty White’s character by Sitka’s own Edward Littlefield.
