Elder Voices: Esther Bourdon
Hear Esther Bourdon in this week’s episode of Elder Voices. In her 2002 interview with KNOM, Esther shares stories of her birth and delivery — assisted by dog team — and her love of translating church hymns into Inupiaq.
Esther encourages young people to learn their traditional language. And she recalls moving to Nome from Wales in a skin boat.
Tune in every Wednesday at 11am and again at 6pm to hear another elder share their story. Only on Elder Voices: a window to the past, a door to the future.
Esther is my Ahpuk (Grandfather) Teddy’s sister. How wonderful to hear her stories!
