From SitNews: @akgovbillwalker said, “the M/V Tazlina gets her name from one of Alaska’s first peoples: the Ahtna Athabascans, for whom “tazlina” means swift river. Malea Voran, who suggested the name, wanted this small ferry to be named after something big and inspiring. The Lt. Governor and I felt it was hard to argue against that: we’re already inspired. We’re proud to be watching this new vessel connect Alaskans, carry their belongings, and improve access throughout the Inside Passage. It’s no small job, but she’s up to the task." The M/V Tazlina was the first @alaskamarinehighway vessel to carry the #madeinalaska title.
