    I`m a Tlingit. My name is Dleit (white or snow). I am 27 years old, a woman whose favorite food is fish eggs that is smoked. Also I like to eat salmon that is fried.The skill, or strength, I have that makes me proudest is that controlling the weather.I think the others in my clan admire me most for curing the sick and ensuring the supply of fish and game. a fear I have is that if I don`t bring the soul catcher back,and this goes along with the weakness I have which is that I always need help with picking herbs. Something else want you to know about me is woman help me with pick some herbs.

    My profile
    I am a Tlingit. Mt name is Ais. I am 20 years old, a men whose favorite is berries especially blueberries dipped in fish oil. The skill, or strength, I have that makes me most proud of is how quiet I can run and how graceful and fast. I think that the others in my clan admire me most for my skil with a bow and arrow since I never missed my mark.A fear I have is that I might accidentally kill a first people and they will come and get me, and this goes along with the weakness that I have which I sometimes hunt animals as little as possible even though I am throwing a potlatch.Something else is that I had that I want you to really know is that even though I am a good hunter it takes me a long time to hunt a bear.
    This is me holding my hunting bow.
    {aim's_person.jpg} Me with my hunting bow ready to shoot a deer.

    Today
    I woke at the crack of dawn and pushed away the furry bear-skinned blanket. I heard the crackeld of the fire as the slaves started them. I hopped out of the mattress and joined my best friend Dis. We headed down to the river to bathe. As we scrubbed our skin I allowed the cool water to run around my skin, and shaking away the sleepyness. I was wide awake this was really heaven the best time of the whole day. I scubed until it was nice and clean. I walked back to my house and slipped into my pounded cedar clothes. I removed my weapons from the hard cedar plank bark wall, slung my bow and arrows onto my back and tuck my daggers into my belt. I was ready to go hunting.
    ...
    Koox got me up and helped me back to the village. I felt proud as we carried the bears. I could tell tat the chief was impressed.
    “Go to have some food before going to the shaman.” He advised. I nodded. I limped over to where everybody else.
    ...
    I then, creptcre pt over to
    “Yak’ei!” I called.
    “ What?”
    ...
    She hobbled out and inspected my wound. She then put some strange healing herbs and did a dance and murmured some special words. When she finished her first healing step she put more plants on the scratch and continued her dance. It took her all the way to dinnertime until she finish. I wince from the pain as she peeled of the medicine. This was the worse time I had in the whole entire day.
    “ Watch out for the bad spirits.” she warned. I hopped over to the dinner place and gobbled down my bear meat steak with extra blueberries that the childrens had pick today. quickly and went into my house with Dis arms to support me. Yak’ei came to check on me and wrapped my leg with the “magical herbs” and said a special prayer to keep the “evil ones” off. I changed into my soft clothes, snuggled into the silky fur blanket and then I close my eyes. I finally fell asleep into the night and under the dark blue sky.
    This is my house.

    My Day Toos
    I woke up from my comfy brown bear fur blanket.
    ...
    Next we went to the river and put fish bones on leaves and it floated on the
    After that, we went to the sea and got the canoes and the slaves all paddled the canoes while we were standing up. We found a big whale swimming across. Me and Dzanti and Kahaakw jumped onto the whale with a harpoon. We stabbed it right on the back. Then we dragged back the whale. Then the house chief Daanaa was really happy. Then we ate the whale. I hate to eat whales. That was my worst part of the day. We went to the river again and caught not only salmons we also caught carp. This time not with nets this time with traps and spears. It was dark so we went back. Ate and slept in our bear fur blanket bed.

    The Awesome Potlatch
    The potlatch was awesome. There were my friends there. They were just sick yesterday.The dancing and singing were so good.
    ...
    from the NotkasNootkas and it
    The new baby was a boy. He was big for a normal baby. His name is Usaa. He weighed about 3.5Kg. Quit heavy. He is still a baby so he cries allot. Usaa cries so loudly that everything around him trembles! The villagers always stare at him when he cries and they get extremely annoyed. Even I get irritated from him. He had a flat face. His hieght was about 51cm.
    ...
    not fair. IwantI want to comunicatecommunicate with them.
    The best part of the day was eating salmon. I like them. There were whale, berries and seal meat but I do not like to eat it.
    The worst part of the day was the speech. It was so long. They only talked about the baby. It was boring.

    as everybody was chanting then the baby started crying. the people heard this and they stopped. next the chief started giving gifts to everyone.
    Gifts such as coppers,canoes,blankets and boxes. then it was time to eat so everybody gobbled down the food like fish stew or seal meat.
    then it was time to say goodbye. but I know I will never go to a potlatch as good as that.

    I am a Tlingit. My name is Dzanti,I am 19 years old and a man.My favorite food is salmon that is roasted on a fire and some fish oil.The skill I have that makes me proudest is that I could catch many fish with lances.I think the others admire most for making nets and harpoons.A fear I have is that whales might crash me over with cane and die and this goes along with the weakness I have which is I couldn't really catch fish with a net.Some thing else I want you to know about me is that I am brave enough for fighting shark.
    Dzanti’s Day {Photo_2.jpg}
    I woke at the morning. I went to get my friend Toos and Kahaakw . I got them and first thing that we did is say hi to chief. Then we went to river for training.The river's water rose like 1 meter because of yesterday's rain.As we goto up river,we met Ais the hunter.She had hunted a small deer.We said bye to her and continued walking to up river.When we finaly got to upriver, we were surprised because there was thousands of salmon.We got our nets and 10 minutes later,we got 10 of them but we let out 4 of them.
