Tune into Elder Voices this week to hear from St. Lawrence Island’s Nancy Walunga. Recorded in 2012, Nancy spoke with KNOM in both English and Siberian Yup’ik.

Nancy shares, “It’s important to let them know who you are, where you are from, your language. When you get older, you will see how important it is: our history.”

Elder Voices: a window to the past, a door to the future.
