We just came back from the fantastic four-year gathering of the Yup’ik/Cup’ik Dances which was held in Chevak. This trip was made possible by the success of the two-day fundraiser which in turn was made possible by the above listed airlines, organizations, and volunteers. Our gratitude goes out to all of you.
We want to extend our congratulations also to the community of Chevak for a job well done and also to the host families. You will be a hard act to follow! Quyana Cakneq.
