Daniel Johnson and other Tlingit Tribe members dance wearing hats from their Raven Clans before a recently returned Bear Clan Totem pole during a welcoming ceremony in Angoon, Alaska, Saturday, Nov. 1, 2003. The totem disappeared from the village in 1908 to reappear in Greeley, Colo., as a gift 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.
