Writer brings old Tlingit tales to life

SITKA (AP) - In the Tlingit story of Strong Man, the hero, Dukt'ootl', grows up building his strength until one day he is ready to become a leader of his people. The challenges that face teens today are a little different, but writer Ishmael Hope was able to relate the ancient Tlingit story to a modern-day story describing the evolution of a bullied teen into a confident young man, who is able to achieve his goals through hard work. The stories are captured in a parallel storytelling style in Hope's comic book, "Strong Man," illustrated by Dimi Macheras.
