Breaking Ground on a New Long House in Hydaburg

A groundbreaking ceremony was held for a new long house in Hydaburg, Alaska. The new community-gathering place is replacing the Alaska Native Brotherhood Hall that once stood there.
Sealaska directors approved a $20,000 contribution toward the project. Other partners on the project include the Rasmuson Foundation, Hydaburg Corporation, the City of Hydaburg and the Four Square Church.

Sealaska also made log donations to the community of Hydaburg supporting totem projects, construction of a long house and wellness totems. In all, 13 red cedar logs have supported the community of Hydaburg.
