Restorative Remarks: Elim Students Share Where They’re From

This month’s restorative feature comes from the creative minds of Elim’s Anguiin School.

Written about and inspired by their lives in Elim, Alaska, students from Catherine York’s English & Language Arts classroom have voiced their own original works for KNOM airplay.

Featuring reflections on subsistence activities, family gatherings, and personal triumphs, these students share that there is much to be thankful for while living in Western Alaska.

KNOM’s Restorative Remarks is a feature program that adapts inspirational messages by Western Alaskans, for Western Alaskans, for radio airplay. Would you like to volunteer your voice or have a suggestion for a written work we should adapt? Drop us a line by emailing or call us at the station at 907-443-5221.
