Our Paper bears the name of The Thlinget not because this is the name of the largest tribe of Alaskan natives but because it means “the people” Although primarally a school paper The Thlinget will be constantly devoted to the welfare of all native people of Alaska.  With this introduction we are glad to make your acquaintance and earnestly hope that our acquaintance may develop into warm friendship.”
