Images of streets, houses, and other buildings in Klukwan, a Tlingit village in Alaska, made on August 6, 1993. According to a description by photographer Adrienne DeArmas, the images form "a panoramic view of the Tlingit Village in Klukwan, Alaska, U.S.A. . . .The slides begin on the left-hand side of the road which divides the community into the riverside and the mountain side, and progress to the end of the community and back up the road on the right-hand side. The river is to the left and the mountains to the right."
In 1993, National Museum of Natural History staff traveled to Juneau and Klukwan, Alaska, to present their plan for the museum's renovated North American Hall to the board members of the Sealaska Corporation and to the community of Klukwan. During the trip, permission was obtained to photograph the community for the archives, the village, and the Sealaska Corporation.
