Seventy years ago today, Feb. 22, 1947, the Bureau of Indian Affairs opened Mt. Edgecumbe High School in Sitka. It reopened as a public boarding school in 1985 and a lot has changed over the decades. Downloadable audio.
In celebration of the 70th anniversary of Mt. Edgecumbe, Founders Week featured performances by Byron Nicholai, the Cody Blackbird Band, Dancers by the Sea from Port Lions, and dance and drum groups from Mt. Edgecumbe and Sitka.
