History of Shaan Seet
The history of Fish Egg Island is the basis of our heritage and culture and how Shaan Seet was named. North Fish Egg Island is located on the northwest portion of the island. This site is extensive and contains garden ridges, house beams, large expanses of shell midden, and various landscape modifications. This village is referred to as “Shaan da”. The small strait between Fish Egg Island and the community of Craig is known as “Shaan Seet”.
Shaan da is also used to refer to Fish Egg Island as a whole.
“Shaan da” is a highly significant cultural place from several perspectives. It contains archaeological and historic remains, which can be linked to oral histories passed down by Elders of Craig, Klawock, and Hydaburg. As a regionally important herring fishery for many centuries, the island has been a place where people and culture have come together.
