Nome Rite of Passage
Received this email yesterday at school from the assistant principal, an email to everyone about two of the new teachers:
Beth and Erika are now official members of and from the Bering Strait Region!
Today, they ate black meat (dried seal meat), seal oil, blubber (seal), muktuk (whale) and too-guy-yuks (sp?) which are greens!
Yeah!!! Cam Piscoya shared. :-)
Partaking in the food makes you one of us Nomeites and is celebrated.
