Some Tlingit villages consisted of only a few houses which were placed in a single row while other villages might have as many as 60 houses which might be arranged in two rows. Among the Tlingit, each house had a fixed place in the village and could not be moved to another place.   While there is a need to articulate indigenous-led research ethics among those who study the Tlingit, it is also important to recognize that history, stories, images, symbols are local, clan-based, and much of our oral Tlingit history is now written down: it is Tlingit oratory that is endangered (Dauenhauer & Dauenhauer, ).
