Alutiiq Word of the Week: Jan. 18
Palicuuskiiq; Palit’saq: Police Officer_ Maani palit’sat amlertut.: There are many policemen here. Although police officers are a relatively new addition to Alutiiq villages, law enforcement is not. Until Alaska achieved statehood and its communities fell under a state judicial system, Alutiiq leaders acted as peacekeepers and judges. A village’s traditional council, led by a locally appointed chief, maintained or...

Sometimes I wonder if the world is against me. If I make plans to go hiking on my next day off, I do so knowing that no matter what the forecast says, when I roll out of bed that day it will probably be raining sideways and blowing sixty knots. Or that nice new powder snow that would be fun to learn to cross-country ski on has fell victim to a rise in temperatures long enough to absorb enough rain that when the bo...
