Profile: Teaching Tlingit Art in Nome

Ed Littlefield is the Artist in Residence at Nome’s Anvil City Science Academy. He’s been working with students for the past two weeks using a traditional Tlingit melody to teach music and performance art. The end product of the two-week session will be a performance that weaves together a Tlingit choir, body percussion, short performance skits, and band ensembles.
