Haines - The Sheldon Museum and Cultural Center has announced the acquisition and future rehousing of the Alaska Indian Arts archive. Last November, Lee Heinmiller and AIA donated the AIA's archives to the Sheldon Museum. This donation includes records, photographs, recordings, and objects relating to AIA, the Port Chilkoot Company, and Chilkoot Enterprises. It is a collection the museum considers to be of extreme importance due to its cultural and historical value. This gift to the museum doubles the museum's archival holdings, greatly increasing the historical resources available to the Haines community. Since the donation, the collection has continued to be housed at AIA at Fort Seward due to limited storage space and staffing at the Sheldon Museum.

As part of last week's Tlingit Clan Conference at Centennial Hall, the Juneau Public Library set up a listening room where conference attendees could hear recordings of interviews conducted as part of the library's ongoing StoryCorps project, expected to run through March. The oral history project focuses on Alaska Native educational experiences. The following is a partial transcript of an interview between Harriet Brouilette and her son, Ted Hart, recently conducted in Haines. In the interview Brouilette, tribal administrator for the Chilkoot Indian Association, talks about her Kake-born mother's traumatic experiences at boarding school, and how her mother's experiences affected her own life. It was recorded through the Juneau Public Library in collaboration with the Haines Public Library. For more information on the project, email Beth Weigel, Program Coordinator at the Juneau Public Libraries, at Beth.Weigel@juneau.org.
