I’m writing again!

It’s been a while. I know.

Thanks to High Country News, I’ll be sharing glimpses into our life in western Alaska. My favorite thing.

This past summer I took a qulliq carving class with one of the greatest teachers of our time, Kunaq. This column explores welcoming the seal oil lamp back into our homes.

Here’s the link! The whole link. Lol. I’m posting this from my phone because my internet has been super jamil lately.
