I’m building this site for my family history and Yanyedí Clan research. I’m requesting help from all sides of my family as well as my Yanyedí Clan so we can build a place to store memories and communicate as well as learning more of our heritage.
Please bear with me as I learn Tlingit Laws and regulations. I am going back to school to learn Tlingit & Nisga’a studies and Museum studies. With a personal side study of Genealogy.
I can recall my Great Uncle Lloyd Sutton and Great Uncle Jimmy Walton telling me about our family when I was little just wish I could remember all the things they said.
Hard to be proud of who you are when you don’t fully even understand where you come from.
Modern age and loss of our stories bring the cold realization of what our Grandparents fought for and the hard truths of their sacrifices being long forgotten. I hope to restore as much as I can.
