One Man's Alaska

Excellent Rural Alaska blog post

April 9, 2009

I really enjoyed this blog posting titled "I miss the ocean" by a woman named Yaari Kingeekuk. This short blurb tells what her excellent blog post is about:

Here I am living in two worlds, the St. Lawrence Island Yupik and western way. I live in a city which to me is big; and that’s Anchorage. I struggle as I try to survive in both worlds.

This blog reminds me of a job I considered in Alaska one time: traveling to rural locations, and telling the stories of the native people for an Alaskan magazine. Hopefully one day I will take the time to take on that type of job, I think it would be very rewarding.
