    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The Sealaska Heritage Institute has received funding to digitize hundreds of recordings of interviews with "notable Elders, clan leaders, and other Native people," according to a release from SHI.

    The recordings date back 35 years and were part of the public radio program, Southeast Native Radio, which aired between 1985 and 2001 in Juneau. The collection was donated to SHI in 2010 from KTOO.

    SHI president Rosita Worl calls the collection a record of contemporary Native history in Southeast Alaska.
