Charlie Jimmie - Growing Up Tlingit

In February 2004, Charlie Jimmie made a presentation at the Haines Borough Public Library about what it was like to grow up Tlingit in the Chilkat Valley.

Jimmie, born in 1932 in Yakutat, is a Raven/Coho and spent his early years traveling with his grandfather and parents. His uncle Tom Jimmie, a cultural historian and tradition bearer, was influential in his upbringing as was his adopted father, Austin Hammond, of the Chilkoot Lukaaxa'di.

Broadcast of this program was made possible by the Haines Borough Public Library.

Meet Charlie Jimmie and learn what it was like for him Growing Up Tlingit.
