Tlingit ‘peace’ headpiece now in Juneau museum
By Mike Dunham
Anchorage, Alaska (AP)
Back in 1972, during a trip to Puget Sound, Nathan Jackson of Haines found himself expected to perform a Tlingit dance. But he didn’t have regalia with him, including a proper head dress. That detail turned out not to be a problem as Jackson, an expert carver, quickly whittled out the frontlet for a headpiece and – voila! – the show went on.
The details of the dance, or even the event, are long forgotten. But people remembered the headpiece. It showed a fairly normal Northwest Indian human figure -- something that would have been at home in the antiquities department of a major museum.
