SHARING LANGUAGE – Coho clan leader Herman Davis speaks to about two dozen people attending a Tlingit language lesson Sunday afternoon in Centennial Hall. Davis is one of about 100 remaining Tlingit speakers who learned the language as children from relatives. Lance Twitchell, University of Alaska Southeast associate professor of Alaska Native languages in Juneau, hosted the free lesson, which was the second of three. The third lesson will be held Saturday noon to 2 p.m. at Centennial Hall. Twitchell is in Sitka teaching at The Outer Coast Summer Seminar. (Sentinel Photo by James Poulson)
