Members of the Tlingit Nation take part in a money dance, in which tribe members dance up to a robe placed on the floor and drop cash, to raise money for scholarship to the University of Northern Colorado during a welcoming ceremony for a recently returned Bear Clan Totem in Angoon, Alaska, Saturday, Nov. 1, 2003. The totem disappeared from the village in 1908 to reappear in Greeley, Colo., as a gift to the university from the secretary of education for Alaska. The Tlingit village of Angoon was leveled by the U.S. Navy in 1882 after an alleged cultural misunderstanding.
