Tlingit

Luke Griswold-Tergis met Cory Mann (Tlingit) while hitchhiking through Alaska—on a sailboat. “Luke and I became friends mainly because he was sleeping on my floor,” explains Mann. During his time spent in Alaska, Griswold-Tergis was struck by the recollection of Alaskan Native peoples’ history and traditions, but realized that the knowledge “is endangered, and people need to work on preserving it more.” As co-producers of the film Smokin’ Fish, Griswold-Tergis and Mann explore the Tlingit tradition of smoking fish from the perspective of Mann.
