This project focuses on the Tsimshian Eagle clan migration from British Columbia Canada to Southeast Alaska. Over the last century and a half many Tsimshians have moved to Metlakatla Alaska and experienced cultural changes that will be examined. The research methods employed will be elder and community member interviews; archival work, specifically with Viola Garfield's papers and field notes at the University of Washington; and work with contemporary anthropologists on my family genealogy.
