Sharing Our Knowledge brings together Native elders, tradition bearers, educators, cultural activists, anthropologists, linguists, historians, and museum professionals to explore the culture, history, and language of the Tlingit people of southeast Alaska and their coastal neighbors. These interdisciplinary, collaborative essays present Tlingit culture, as well as the culture of their coastal neighbors, not as an object of study but rather as a living heritage that continues to inspire and guide the lives of communities and individuals throughout southeast Alaska and northwest British Columbia.
This volume focuses on the preservation and dissemination of Tlingit language, traditional cultural knowledge, and history from an activist Tlingit perspective. Sharing Our Knowledge also highlights a variety of collaborations between Native groups and individuals and non-Native researchers, emphasizing a long history of respectful, cooperative, and productive working relations aimed at recording and transmitting cultural knowledge for tribal use and promoting Native agency in preserving heritage. By focusing on these collaborations, the contributors demonstrate how such alliances have benefited the Tlingits and neighboring groups in preserving and protecting their heritage while advancing scholarship at the same time.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A number of quite moving contributions. . . Typically, the more interesting a book is, the more tangents are available to readers. This book sent this reviewer on numerous tangents. Highly Recommended."-M. Ebert, CHOICE * CHOICE *
"Sharing Our Knowledge is a welcome reassessment of the field of Tlingit studies, but it is also far more than that, since it breaks new ground on so many different fronts, particularly its approach to collaborative and community-based research."-David Arnold, American Indian Culture and Research Journal -- David Arnold * American Indian Culture and Research Journal *
"A necessary read for anybody living in Tlingit territory."-Michael Bach, Alaska Journal of Anthropology -- Michael Bach * Alaska Journal of Anthropology *
