Thank-you Sealaska Corporation, Sealaska Heritage Foundation and all the volunteers that made Celebration 2004 in Juneau, Alaska so successful.

Special thank-you to the Yees Ku Oo dance group-Juneau for allowing me and my family to dance with you. Special thank-you to Ms. Marge Byrd, Shx at Kwaan dancers-Wrangell for the kind words for Ms. Ester Shea and allowing my family to dance with your group. Real special thank-you to my brothers; Kenny, Jimmy and tribal brother Joe Reeves and his family for their hospitality and opening up their homes for us.
