The Alaska Native[?] and Canadian First Nations and up the big rivers are Tlingit. The original name is Lingit. The Lingit are a matrilineal society who developed a complex hunter-gatherer culture in the temperate rain forest along the Pacific coast. The anthropologists classify the language as Athabascan. For centuries, outsiders have been impressed by the woodworking skill and the fine art in totem poles and masks and the magnificent weaving.
