Help us redesign the Project Jukebox website by taking a very short survey!
Trudy Wolfe is Tlingit and was born on August 7, 1933 to Mary and Frank Paul, Sr. in Sitka, Alaska. She is a L'uknax sháa (Coho Woman) from Kayáashka Hít in Sitka. In 1957, she married Bill Wolfe and they moved to Hoonah, Alaska in 1960. In 1965, Hoonah's village health council chose her as a community health aide. An extra bedroom in her home became the clinic and her husband and children helped. In recognition of Trudy's contributions to the community, in 1988 the health clinic in Hoonah was named the "Trudy Wolfe Community Health Clinic." She also was a President of the Alaska Native Sisterhood, Camp 12 of Hoonah for many years and was considered a hard and dedicated worker. Trudy retired around 1990, and moved to Sitka and then to Juneau.
