On this week’s episode of Elder Voices, we visit with Unalakleet’s Irene Katchatag, through her interview with KNOM from April 2002.

Irene recalls her childhood chores, along with the carefree days. Recounting wisdom she remembers from her elders, she shares her life, one story at a time.

Join KNOM every Wednesday at 11am and again at 6pm, for a rebroadcast of the beloved series Elder Voices: sharing the stories and history of western Alaska.
