If there’s something every country and the whole world has in common it’s that they were all home to native tribes, whether it was the Aztecs, Cherokees, Inuit, Nuer, Hadza or Incas and many more.

The Chilkat robe cost approximately $30 in the mid-1800s. The only items that came close to the Chilkat robe’s value were caribou hides, copper, and guns. In the 1900s, Tlingit Indians started to work in canneries, basing their economy on wages and fishing (Malinowski, Sheets, Schmittroth 1268).
