Among the few home-grown elements in “The Proposal,” set in Sitka, AK, is a Tlingit wedding chant, composed by a local musician.
“The Proposal,” a romantic comedy starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, is set in Sitka, but most of it was shot in Rockport, Massachusetts. Tlingit musician, Edward Littlefield, composed the wedding chant for Betty White’s character, Gamma.
