OUTDOORS Capital City Weekly A thread that seems to flow through many Alaska's lost gold legends is the involvement of Natives. How did they know where to find gold nuggets? When I looked through my collection of books about the early English and American traders, I could find no mention of gold artifacts or nuggets being offered to Alaska ship traders. Nor were furs valuable enough for traders to offer gold items. In museums with Tlingit and Haida artifacts, I can't remember seeing gold inlays. Has anyone?
