  1. I am half Athabascan indian from Chitina, but I live in Anchorage. As A child my mom was the President of the Chitina board. When we were driving down the Chitina road heading back to Anchorage I saw many spiritual faces coming and going from our front window. like mist or fog. I said “mom those look like faces!” My mom replied “Shhhh …be quiet and ignore them”. Eventually the spirits flew away. I guess they were just curious to see who we were. As a 10-11 year old child, it is an experience I will never forget. And it made me a true believer in ghosts. -Shawn Johnson. Last name would be Goodlataw, but my grandmother got married.
