Sitkans this week will mark 40 days since the passing of John Littlefield with a traditional celebration of his life. The food will be wild, local, and plentiful -- thanks in large part to his legacy. John Littlefield was a clan uncle, a father, a husband, and electrical contractor. But most of all, he was a passionate advocate for traditional subsistence rights.
The proposed sale is about eight miles north of downtown. It includes 485 acres of land on the west side of Lisianski Peninsula, near Dog Point. The land is off Sitka’s road system, about three miles north of the Starrigavan ferry terminal by water.
