As part of his tour through Southeast earlier this spring, Kinneen stopped in at Sitka’s Mt. Edgecumbe High School and taught a cooking class. Although Kinneen is a Tlingit, with roots in Petersburg, Sitka, and Metlakatla, he is a ready hand with delicacies from other regions, including muktuk sushi.

Kinneen’s visit to Mt. Edgecumbe was co-sponsored by the Sitka Conservation Society and SEARHC Health Promotions.

Afcan is a student reporter at Mt. Edgecumbe.
