  1. They have learned SO much! 🙂
    The community is lucky to have you as their teacher, so that you can help the kids truly embrace and expand on their culture.
    It’s so wonderful to see so many different kuspuks! Cannot wait to wear mine during week one of my American Indian history class when they read Velma Wallis’s Two Old Women 🙂 (I teach in Nebraska at a college).
    I may have posted this on FB. . . so if you get a lot of view after this moment, it’s my fault 🙂 THANK YOU for teaching these beautiful children!
    PS: My aunt left south chicago to teach in Dillingham in 1958! And apparently I now have a distant cousin that teaches in Dillingham again . . .

    • Really good to hear from you, Sandra, and so glad you enjoyed the video. We are mindful every day just how lucky we are to have been invited into this village and to get to teach these students and live in this beautiful part of the world.
