Chichagof Island, named after Russian Admiral Vasili Chichagov, is located just off the coast of Juneau in the Alaskan panhandle. The town of Hoonah (village by the cliff), lies in the northeast corner of Chichagof Island, with a resident population of 900. Native Tlingits enjoy rich fishing grounds along the Icy Point Strait area. A local cannery, in operation since the early 1900s, provides employment.
