To assist us in our this project, we involved undergraduate students from UAA who have lived in our partner communities. They helped us to learn about local culture and customs, and gave us an additional glimpse into rural life and subsistence practices. The works posted on this page are from the writing of one such undergraduate research assistant.
"It is nice to see icebergs everywhere when we go out, because the seals like to rest and sleep on top of the icepacks and can be easily spotted."
"Hunting can be dangerous, and we are taught how to be as safe as possible all the time."
