Dr. Chamberlain teaches at the University of Alaska and earned public health degrees from Yale School of Medicine and Johns Hopkins University.

Dan Henry: Talking the trail

The 90+ -minute talk will focus on events in the upper Lynn Canal from 1867-1898 to show the widening interest, exploitation, and challenge to Tlingit ownership of the Chilkoot trade route.

Beyond basic history, Daniel Henry’s rhetorical perspective underscores the relationship between Tlingits and the newcomers with attention to their persuasive efforts. Attention is given to Dyea leader Lunaat, who struggled to maintain his culture while negotiating with the flood of white miners and Natives from throughout the region.

Portions of the talk are drawn from Henry’s new book, Across the Shaman’s River: John Muir, the Tlingit Stronghold, and the Opening of the North. Some historic slides are incorporated.
