Tuullek; Tuulautek — Tongs
Tuullek; Tuulautek — Tongs Keniyaqama tuulautek aturtaagka. — When I cook I use tongs. Tongs were common tools in ancestral Alutiiq households.

Dance background helps Heiberg excel on the board
Tessa Heiberg often finds herself dancing on the pool deck. The weird part is that her body starts moving even when there is no music playing. “I’ll dance while people are on the (diving) board and they will just give me funny looks, but that is OK,” the Kodiak senior said.
