Scope and content: "An edited volume of interdisciplinary, collaborative research on Tlingit culture, language, and history"-- Provided by publisher.Scope and content: "Sharing Our Knowledge brings together Native elders, tradition bearers, educators, cultural activists, anthropologists, linguists, historians, and museum professionals to explore the culture, history, and language of the Tlingit people of southeast Alaska and their coastal neighbors. These interdisciplinary, collaborative essays present Tlingit culture not as an object of study but rather as a living heritage that continues to inspire and guide the lives of communities and individuals throughout southeast Alaska and northwest British Columbia. This volume focuses on the preservation and dissemination of Tlingit language, traditional cultural knowledge, and history from an activist Tlingit perspective. Sharing Our Knowledge also highlights a variety of collaborations between Native groups and individuals and non-Native researchers, emphasizing a long history of respectful, cooperative, and productive working relations aimed at recording and transmitting cultural knowledge for tribal use and promoting Native agency in preserving heritage. By focusing on these collaborations, the contributors demonstrate how such alliances have benefited the Tlingits and neighboring groups in preserving and protecting their heritage while advancing scholarship at the same time"-- Provided by publisher.

CHOICE Review

The Northwest Coast volume (CH, Mar'91, 28-3640) of the Handbook of North American Indians (vol. 7) is now 25 years old, and Kan (Dartmouth) suggests it is time to reassess the field of Tlingit research. A growing body of literature on the Pacific Coast takes an Indigenous-non-Indigenous collaborative approach to assessing current knowledge and research on a particular people, such as editor Robert T. Boyd's Chinookan Peoples of the Lower Columbia (CH, Jun'14, 51-5765). Arising from a clan conference, the 24 chapters in Sharing our Knowledge are grouped into five parts discussing elders and teachers (a number of quite moving contributions), history, material culture, tourism, repatriation, subsistence, and art. Alaska provides an interesting context for Indigenous studies given its relationship and distance to the lower 48. Diane Purvis discusses the dynamics surrounding the concept of "Indian country" and how the legal system treated the Tlingit. Another example of the book's value beyond its regional focus, recommended to others working on Indigenous education, is Thomas F. Thornton's chapter arguing for a place-based education curriculum, which builds on his past work, such as Being and Place among the Tlingit (CH, Sep'08, 46-0391). Typically, the more interesting a book is, the more tangents are available to readers. This book sent this reviewer on numerous tangents. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All general and academic collections. --Mark Ebert, University of British Columbia
