JUNEAU (AP) — Bids will go out this winter to build a tribal house in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, part of an effort to restore Native traditions in places that have become national parks.
Glacier Bay near Juneau is the former home of four Huna Tlingit clans until ice began advancing about 5,000 years ago. The Tlingit people moved and built new villages, including the largest, Hoonah, about 30 miles southeast, CoastAlaska reported.
The area eventually became a national park after the ice receded, which made it ineligible for resettlement.
