A documentary series about Ketchikan won regional Emmy awards in two categories during the awards ceremony Saturday in Seattle.

“Ketchikan: Our Native Legacy” is one of five segments in the Ketchikan Story Project series. The series is a Ketchikan Visitors Bureau project funded by the Ketchikan Gateway Borough to provide information about Ketchikan for visitors.

The program won for best historical or cultural program, with trophies handed over to producer Deby Santos and writer/producer Laurel Lindahl. It also won in the post-production director category, and that Emmy went to director Kyle Aramburo.

That segment also has won silver awards in the recent Telly Awards competition.

Other segments in the Story Project series focus on fishing, artists, logging and Bush pilots.
