Anthropologist discusses Tlingit spirituality

University of Alaska Anchorage Anthropology Professor Steve Langdon discusses Tlingit Spirituality during a Native American Heritage Month program.

Traditional Tlingit culture is filled with spiritual presence and powers that exist within and beyond direct experience.

That’s according to University of Alaska Anchorage Anthropology Professor Steve Langdon.

He spoke Tuesday about Tlingit spiritual connections and obligations. It was the first of five Native spirituality programs sponsored by the Juneau-based Sealaska Heritage Institute as part of Native American Heritage Month.

Here, he uses a traditional salmon story to illustrate different dimensions of the beliefs.

That was an excerpt from a lecture on Tlingit spiritual connections and obligations given by University of Alaska Anchorage Anthropology Professor Steve Langdon.

He spoke Tuesday (this week) in the first of five programs on Native spirituality sponsored by the Sealaska Heritage Institute during Native American Heritage Month.
