Farewell to Quinhagak

September 4, 2014

Yesterday Rick & Charlotta, the last remaining archaeologists in Quinhagak, closed the last lid of the last container of artefacts, left them in a huge stack (of 52 coolers & boxes to be precise) awaiting shipping to Aberdeen and the post-ex lab, got in the plane and left the village for this year.

    thank you so very much for allowing me to visit, help out and be a part of the amazing Show and Tell. You all are a great bunch of people with dedication and good will. I’m so proud to be a Yup’ik and Cup’ig Eskimo, we are alive and well. I’m still learning about who I am, and these objects are a great way to immerse myself in our rich history.
