Children sit in a dugout canoe in Angoon on Oct. 26. The dugout was dedicated to mark the 140th anniversary of the bombardment of the community. In 1882, the U.S. Navy opened fire on Angoon, burning the village and destroying all but one in its fleet of canoes. The new dugout was carved by Tlingit master carver Wayne Price and students in the Chatham School District.
