Point Hope 1940’s

Point Hope – Tikigaq

I was only supposed to be here; for 3 weeks. I left at the end of those 3 short weeks.  30 years later I have quite  a story to tell.  It is truly bizarre, preposterous and adventurous and so much more.  When I first arrived in September of 1981.  This place only had 420 people.  ‘Literally’.. No one else for many hundreds of miles in any direction. Isolated, remote and cut off.  Winter is 9 months long surrounded by ice on all sides in every direction for as far as the eye can see and far beyond that.
