Join us for a special presentation of Elder Voices featuring King Island elder Vince Pikonganna in two interviews from 2003 and 2013.

Vince was born in Nome and spent most of his formative years on King Island, before the community was relocated to Nome.

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