Louise Brady describes the schedule for the Saturday, April 6, Koo.eex' hosted by the Sitka Kiks.adi. A canoe will be launched from Old Sitka, and paddled to Crescent Harbor with a planned arrival time of 1 p.m. Everyone will then march to the ANB Founders Hall for the 2 p.m. koo.eex' (translated literally as "an invitation").
To mark the beginning of the herring egg harvest, members of the Kiks.adi clan gathered on March 22, 2015 to bless Herring Rock. Amid the prayers for safe harvest, the blessing this year was less about the rock and more about the man who fought for it's survival. KCAW's Emily Kwong was at the ceremony and sent this audio postcard.
