Project Description

Alaska Native Elder David Katzeek sings and speaks during the Yanyeidi wolf totem pole raising at Savikko Park on Wednesday, June 6, 2018. The totem pole is meant to be an icon of remembrance and healing. It stands on the site of the traditional Douglas Indian Village, which was destroyed in 1962 by a white government that wanted the land for a new boat harbor.
