These are some incredible stories that I never realized about Alaskan life!! Wow, I was especially amazed about the boyers. How smart they are! I couldn't even find that info on Wikipedia   Now that I know a little bit more about life up there, I'll be remembering your village in my prayers! There must be much strength needed to live in those conditions, and I know the Lord can supply it. Thanks for sharing!

Your story and pictures are amazing.  But what I am most impressed with is your love and understanding for the people, and your openness to their experience and point of view.

Thank you very much for sharing what you learned.

What a wonderful record, Majik!  I just discovered this forum.
I have only been to Alaska in the summer, and found the people wonderful and the landscape beautiful.  I was amazed at how sharp the tree line was, and how chilly it was on the Artic Ocean shore.  
You have lived with what the natives have to endur, and I can't agree more about outside interference.  I have nothing but disgust for Greenpeace and others like them, and for the meddling of our government in the lives of people.  God provided all these resources for our use, and so long as we use them wisely, they are ours.  To limit peoples ability to obtain food, clothing, and other necessities for life is truly criminal!  Unfortunately, this is what governments want - to keep us under their thumb so they have the power.  
I grew up on a farm in Michigan, and the heavy hand of government was there too, keeping us from obtaining our full potential.  I guess the difference is, we didn't risk freezing or starving where we were.
I just love your photos, and the conditions you were under making them is unbelieveable.  I didn't know you could process and print under those conditions.  I see why you love those people and that area.

Hey Majik...You have shots of our (possibly) future Vice President being tossed on a blanket!

Majik, I don’t want to turn this thread into a political discussion, but I’m just curious if you, or the people with whom you come into contact, have changed opinions about Sarah Palin since her national televised interviews and the release of the “Trooper Gate” report?

This forum thread is not the place to discuss politics, and I don’t want to hijack Majik’s thread, so I hope this thread doesn’t become political. Also, my question is not intended to express any opinion about Sarah Palin, so please don’t assume that merely by asking my question I’m somehow implying anything about Sarah Palin.

Majik, it appears that I opened a sensitive topic.

1.  A little earlier in this thread you stated:

      “This brilliant woman has done something no other governor in the U.S. has ever attained .. 86% approval rating ! That is unheard of .. .. .. in any state by any governor ever !! That was just the most wonderful news item to hear over the television on the news !! I stood up and applauded !! Its about time we have someone who knows the importance of telling and speaking the truth. I am so sick of having to put up with people that choose to lie, to impress others.”

I’m sorry, but I just didn’t understand that this statement was “all about Alaska Natives and their right to eat their food.”  

2.  I think you could have answered my question without sounding biased.  A simple “no” or “yes” would have answered my question.  

3.  Your third and fourth answers, and the link, are not relevant to my question.  It appears that you took my question to be some sort of bashing of Palin.  As I wrote, my intent was not to comment on Palin.  I was just curious about the reaction of Alaskan to all the coverage about her.

I think what the media is doing (against her ) is discusting !  

I only wish  they would apply the same standards to Obama !


AMEN Majik!!!

Now back to the whale hunt. It look as though you were on the boat? That must have been awesome!

I'm glad too that the scanner is working out. Your images are always a treat and quite informative.

I do find it quite ironic that you now have bought some "Digital ICE". Don't you have enough ice there already?

Finally your back! I have been anxiously waiting for your saga to resume. Beautiful sunset! Are you in the area of 6 month days and 6 month nights? I have to go check out your other forums to see if there is anything different.

Man alive it is an amazing story which I love reading about! Thank you for sharing your end of the earth with us. Looking through it makes sitting here in Australia in 40 degree celcius weather a little bit cooler. I couldn't imagine what it would be like to have things so dark for so long.
So clearly living in Barrow is nothing like the movie then!

The movie is called 30 Days of Night and it's about when vampires come to Barrow during the month of darkness. Not a bad movie if you're into that sort of thing.

But once again, thank you for opening my eyes up to a pocket of the world I have no idea about. Truly inspiring.

The work begins, right here !! 12 hour days of backbreaking incredibly hard work. This is the test. Lets see first hand, just how hard of a worker you really are. This is no place for bs. Hustle and get the job done !!


No pay, hard work for days on end, for miles on end !  It is 30 below zero ! Work for the next 12 hours and make a smooth path - have a great day !


Now in your world, you go into a super market and pick the food from the shelves for what you want.


90% of the Inupiaq food that Inupiaq peoples hunt and eat, is gathered from the ocean !!

Do you have HDTV? That's most important. You need to keep yourself abreast of world events.
