Southeast sagas: Chief Aanyalahaash

Although the Auke Chief Kowee is the best-known chief whose lifespan overlapped Juneau's founding years, he is not the only one. Another leader in the area was the Chief of the T'aaku Kwaan, Annaclas or Anatlahash or An-Naa-Klosh. His name was rendered as Annaclas in the 1910 Census of Juneau, which also listed his wife, Jennie, born in 1848. The preferred spelling of his name, according to Steve Henrikson of the Alaska State Museum, is Aanyalahaash, meaning "floating in front of town." According to a newspaper article written on the day of his burial, he spoke only Chinook traders' jargon. It seems more likely that he spoke Chinook to Caucasians and Tlingits solely to those who understood Tlingit.

"3"-peat: Lucky years for local teams

A look at the past shows that more often than not, years that end in three have meant good basketball seasons for Juneau and Douglas. Boys' state championships in 1963 and 1973 and a girls state title in 1983 are three of the "3" highlights for Juneau-Douglas High School. And, of course, Douglas High School made it to the state title series in 1953.
