Research and Publications
Sealaska Heritage encourages scholarship of Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian cultures. Its archive, library and ethnographic and art collections are available to the public for study. We also sponsor a Visiting Scholars Program to provide logistical support to researchers. In addition, institute staff conducts its own research on topics pertinent to Native cultures and has published many books, including children's books. It also publishes the Box of Knowledge series, consisting of essays, reports, and books that institute considers should be made available as a contribution to studies on Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian cultures, history and languages. Titles in the series include Aas Ḵwáani (People of the Trees): Ancient Ceremonial Rites by Dr. Rosita Ḵahaaní Worl, Doing Battle with the Halibut People by Dr. Chuck Smythe, and The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act: Integrating Science and Stories by Dr. Rosita Ḵahaaní Worl.
