The Icy Strait Lodge is located in a very beautiful area of Hoonah and operates year-round. The waterside of the lodge has a southern exposure where three waterways converge on a constantly changing "tidal flat" which combine to provide a remarkably beautiful and ever-changing panorama. The locations beauty and interaction with wildlife have led us to call the remarkable view from our back yard a "Nature theater". We believe that this unique, serene and ever-changing view of the ocean showcases the magnificence of the ocean that comes like clockwork to our beach twice a day!
The Huna Tlingit people have lived in the Southeast Alaska archipelago for many hundreds of years. They originally occupied the area now known as Glacier Bay but were forced from their village more than two hundred years ago by advancing glaciers. In 1754, they chose to permanently settle twenty miles to the south where they subsistence-harvested each summer. The new settlement was referred to as Gaawt'ak.aan, or "village by the cliff." Later the name was changed to Xu.naa (Hoonah), "where the north wind doesn't blow."
The Hoonah Indian Association was chartered in 1939 as a Federally Recognized Tribe. The clan is the basic social unit within the Tlingit society. Its membership is comprised of individuals who trace their kinship through the maternal line.
