Tlingit weavers reconnect with goat hair

For Tlingits, the art of weaving goat wool into their ceremonial blankets, robes, and tunics have long been a way to connect to spirit and to each other. But when Glacier Bay National Monument expanded in 1939, it ended up engulfing about two thirds of their traditional territory and added to an already strained relationship between the making of Tlingit regalia and the mountain goat. But there is a reconnection in the works.
