About the Maker
Pauline Duncan is a retired first grade teacher at Baranof Elementary School in Sitka Alaska and served the Alaska school district for 27 years. Pauline was one of the first Native teachers certified in Alaska. Her Tlingit name is Gaaw, and she is of the Eagle-Bear clan and Valley House of Angoon. She is the mother of five children and grandmother of seven. As an Alaska Native, Pauline was concerned about the loss of her language, so she set about finding a way to stimulate an interest in learning the Tlingit language in her own classroom.
With the help of her grandchildren and husband, Pauline has published many booklets, informational sheets and tapes sharing her knowledge of the Tlingit language and a cookbook of Tlingit recipes. Additionally, she shares her culture through weaving cedar baskets and beading jewelry using cedar seeds.
