The Canton is part of the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism). For an explanation of what the SCA is, click Here

We are claiming the coastal territories of Winter's Gate, which, in Mundane terms, is all of Coastal Northern Alaska, from just below Nome, all the way to the Yukon, and the Islands of Diomede.
...and while we're at it, we're claiming all of the Russia's east of the Ural mountains and Caspian sea!
Being based in Kotzebue, AK at 66* 54' North latitude (33 miles NORTH of the Arctic Circle) will make us the Northernmost branch of the SCA, the next being the incipient shire of Frostheim in Nordmark (Kingdom of Drachenvald) which is based in Lulea and Boden in Northern Sweden, at 65*50' North.

Canton Motto: "We're above all that."
