Robi Craig

Robi Craig is a Tlingit anthropologist who is a member of the Kiks.adi clan from Sitka, Alaska. She received a BA in Anthropology from the University of Alaska, Anchorage, and from 1996 to 2001 served as the Tribal Anthropologist for the Sitka Tribe of Alaska. In 1998 and 1999, she assisted with the oral history interviews for the Sitka National Historical Park Project Jukebox. For the Sitka Tribe, she collaborated with Elders to complete the Tribe's Tlingit Geographic Place Names of the Tribe's traditional territory, which is a multimedia, GIS mapping project that audio-visually recounts the tribe's traditional territory and all the clan salmon streams, hunting areas, campsites and archeological sites in the Tlingit language. She also worked on the Tribe's Sockeye Salmon Traditional Ecological Knowledge project, helped with creation of the Tribe's Kayaani (traditional plant use) Commission, and served as Deputy General Manager of the Sitka Tribe of Alaska. In 2005, Robi was a finalist for the Ecotrust Indigenous Leadership Award for her efforts to improve the cultural, social, environmental and economic conditions of the Sitka Tribe of Alaska.
