Nome Rite of Passage

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.
