Sitka celebrated its fourth annual Yaaw Koo.éex’, or Herring Ceremony, in April. The ceremony honors the role of herring in the way of life of the Lingít people. The event included stories performed in Lingít and English, distribution of gifts and blankets, and traditional song and dance. KCAW’s Meredith Redick attended the event and returned with this audio postcard.
