Tyonek Preservation

Dating back to the 1500s, we have proof that the Tebughna (Beach People) were alive and well in Tyonek.  The preservation of artifacts has been central to PacRim Coal activities in the area.

Among the shareholders working on the archaeological site is Misty Buckles. This will be her third summer working with Stephen R. Braund & Associates (SRB&A) on the project. So far, she has logged over 1400 hours identifying, labeling, and cataloging artifacts.  Misty is following guidelines for curation set by the Museum of the North in Fairbanks, where the objects will be housed.
