Angoon, AK

Admiralty Island rests between Juneau and Sitka. The island is designated as Admiralty National Monument, Tongass National Forest and Kootznoowoo Wilderness Preserve.  Commonly known as "Fortress of the Bears" for its large brown bear population, the island is also known for its high concentration of nesting bald eagles, migrating humpback and killer whales and its impressive tidal action.

The Tlingit community of Angoon is located on an isthmus that separates Kootznoowoo Inlet from Chatham Strait. Most of the towns' residents overlook Chatham Strait; while Angoon Trading Co. hugs the cliffs of the inlet. Perched above the headwaters of Mitchell Bay, Angoon Trading Co. offers everything from groceries, lumber, hardware, appliances, plumbing and heating supplies to clothes, beading and craft supplies, specialty gifts and souvenirs.

Angoon is the only year round settlement on Admiralty Island. With approximately 500 residents, this small rural community is the ideal location for outdoor activities like fishing, hunting, hiking and kayaking.

Angoon is a predominately Tlingit village with a rich cultural history. Many community members still practice subsistence hunting and gathering.
