Native Alaskan Culture: between past and future
Published:
I met Brenda when she was 9 in a remote Eskimo village on Alaska's Bering Sea coastline. Her traditional native culture has faded, yet her community has not become part of modern American culture either.
"I'm afraid that the way life has changed, which hasn't been necessarily for the best, it gives us a false sense of livelihood. I'm afraid we've gone so far away from our own culture and dependent on this temporary fixum for a lifestyle, that it's going to be another super adjustment." - Joe Garney of Teller, Alaska
