“YOURS FOR WESTERN ALASKA”

(907) 443-5221

Dear Friend… (October 2022)

Listening requires humility. 

In the cultures of Western Alaska, people take time to listen: not speaking over another, not planning the next sentence while the other person speaks. That kind of selfless listening requires humility. Fully taking in what someone has to say honors the other person and opens the door for honest sharing.

On the radio, listening and sharing strengthens everyone. Hearing from people in other communities builds familiarity and consensus. Celebrating traditional values and language supports cultural vitality. The community helps us thrive.

Thank you for listening to and supporting the people of Western Alaska!
