Sealaska Partners with City of Angoon to Protect Gravesite
Wednesday, November 13, 2019
For Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian people the basis of identity begins with a deep connection to land and water. A recent request from the City of Angoon to help protect a gravesite aligns with Sealaska’s management of traditional homelands.
The Salvation Army learned that two buildings for the Angoon Corps were built over existing graves. The discovery was made during a survey of the property six years ago. In an agreement, The Salvation Army worked with the City of Angoon to find alternative property and structures for the ministry.
Sealaska’s $35,000 donation will assist the city in relocating a steel building to a new location. Once moved to city-owned land, the city will lease the building to The Salvation Army.
Sealaska’s financial success allows continued investments in areas that benefit shareholders. Read more about Sealaska’s financial growth here.
