Three New visitors!

Stumbled upon this Blog of ICE ! (chuckle).  It seems that video’s that I placed upon this site & YouTube are a huge success. News is  reaching all over the arctic.

Atkasaq & Point Hope are two of the ‘visitors’ we have had today !! Hooray! it is good to see ‘friends’ again!!

One of the few villages I have never had the chance to visit or live.

University of Alaska

Fairbanks… Good Job, nice work. Someone spent the time to download many dozens of images of blanket toss from our blog. ALL of the many hundreds of images of blanket toss  are located here.

If you require high resolution images for printing; to display on college grounds – EVERYTHING IS FREE!

Simply contact me and I will provide a password protected link for the University to access all of our images.
