Sacred site added to Glacier Bay NP&Pres; will be co-managed with Hoonah Indians

A 150-acre cultural site has been added to Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve in southeast Alaska that will be managed in collaboration with the Hoonah Indian Association, a federally recognized tribal government, through a unique conservation easement.


The newly acquired property, which sits at the head of Berg Bay, is a sacred site for the Huna Tlingit. The land will provide opportunities for tribal members to engage in traditional cultural practices and will support public access to fishing, hiking and camping opportunities thanks to funding from the Land and Water Conservation Fund and other sources.
