Sharing Our Culture
Louis is President/CEO of Kavilco Incorporated, a position he has held since 1972. He attended high school and junior college at Sheldon Jackson in Sitka and went on to become a commercial fisherman. He has logged, trapped, owned his own boat and served in the army. Annette went to college at Western Washington State University in Bellingham and Griffin Business College in Seattle. She worked as a tribal court administrator for the Suquamish Tribe in Seattle and Sitka. She and Louis met through mutual friends and settled in Kasaan after they were married in 1992.
Before the Thompsons sold their house in Kasaan, you could watch sea lions, humpback and killer whales, plus a wide variety of animals, birds and plant life from their front yard. It was just a short walk to the Chief Son-I-Hat Whale House and Totem Park. Annette and Louis shared their Native culture through these photographs taken in 2007.
