knowledge, stewardship, and community
One Situk provides resources to encourage understanding and stewardship for the river. After all, there’s only One Situk.
welcome to yakutat
“The Situk/Arhnklin/Lost River areas are the traditional lands of the Yakutat Teikweidí Brown Bear clan. The annual run of five species of salmon feeds us physically, provides us with an economic lifestyle that is unique, and nourishes us spiritually.
We have been stewards of this river for centuries. We still subsist on salmon as our ancestors have. The commercial fishery continues to economically support the community of Yakutat. Our children attend culture camp to practice their culture as their ancestors have. It is Haa Aani, sacred land. The Teikweidí and the other four Tlingit clans of Yakutat hope you enjoy your visit. We ask that you will continue to conserve the resource as well as continue to practice stewardship."
