SHS AK Studies

for students of Alaska History and Cultural Studies at Sitka High School

Visit to Russian Bishop’s House

All Alaska History and Cultural Studies classes visited the Russian Bishop’s House and Totem Park this week.  At the Bishop’s House, Clarence Watkins gave a dynamic presentation on the voices of the Russian Bishop’s House.  Meanwhile, at the park, Sue Thorson engaged students with a hands-on overview of the School Days exhibit she created from the books at the Russian Bishop’s House.  At the Bishop’s House, students as always were entertained by the model of Russian America built by Bill Kleinert.  The field trip helped students to envision the cultural change that occurred on the shores of Baranof Island as the Tlingit, Aleut, Russian, Finnish, Chinese, and British cultures came together.
