      Emily Moore presents Proud Raven, Panting Wolf: Carving Alaska’s New Deal Totem Parks

      In Proud Raven, Panting Wolf: Carving Alaska's New Deal Totem Parks, Ketchikan-native Emily Moore examines the origins of totem parks at Saxman, Totem Bight, Wrangell and Prince of Wales Island. Built between 1938 and 1942 as part of a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) program, Alaska's totem parks arose out of a controversial set of compromises between New Deal efforts to preserve "American heritage" and Tlingit and Haida efforts to assert their own heritage and claims to the Tongass National Forest.

      Emily Moore is currently Assistant Professor of Art History at Colorado State University. Proud Raven, Panting Wolf: Carving Alaska's New Deal Totem Parks is published by University of Washington Press.
