Sitka Tribe of Alaska
Sitka Tribe of Alaska is the federally recognized government for more than 4000 Tribal Citizens who are primarily of Tlingit, Haida, Aleut and Tsimpsian Heritage in the Sheet'-Ká area which encompasses all of Baranof Island (Shee) and the southern and western half of Chicagof Island in the Alexander Archipelago of Southeastern Alaska.
Our mission is to involve our tribal youth and elders in our effort to increase our collection and the circulation of Sitka Tribal library resources within the tribal community while providing a comfortable atmosphere and an archive location for rare tribal documents, recordings and historical photographs.
Sitka Historical Museum
The Sitka Historical Museum is a history museum in Sitka, Alaska with a focus on interpreting Sitka and Southeast Alaska’s history. Known as the only museum in Sitka that contains elements of all of Sitka’s history, the Sitka Historical Museum has exhibits, photographs, artifacts, and archives related to Sitka’s Tlingit, Russian, and American history, and particularly, the period surrounding and following Alaska’s 1867 transfer from Russia. The breadth of history interpreted makes the Museum a great first stop for travelers to orient themselves to Sitka.
The mission of the Sitka Historical Society is to preserve and promote the events, stories and artifacts of the human history of the Sitka area for the inspiration, education and benefit of the public and future generations.
