Voices of the Tongass

Voices of the Tongass

Michael Guggenbickler, a senior at WHS, has chosen to host a Community Radio show every Wednesday evening at 7pm for his Senior Project. As part of his show Michael will broadcast topics, interviews and local events of interest to our Wrangell Youth.

One of these segments is Voices on the Tongass:

Voices of the Tongass is a multi-media project revolving around the stories Southeast Alaskans tell about the landscape that has shaped them. Including interviews, photographs, and articles, the project explores many facets of life in Southeast Alaska. Voices of the Tongass is inspired by the experiences of its creators, Caitlin Woolsey and Berett Wilber, who were born and raised in Sitka and somehow always find a reason to come back to the Tongass. Their next step will be to expand the project to include perspectives beyond their own generation.
