Artist and Hunter in modern Inupiat culture

seal, walrus, ice, etsy 

Watch a wonderful little film by Etsy about an artist from my hometown Nome - and King Island: Sylvester Ayak shows the evolution of traditional Inupiat culture and how he balances his life as a hunter and carver. 

I know and have known such artists and hunters, young and old, alive or gone from this world, many from my own extended family. 

In my novel Flight of the Goose, Willy is a major character who reflects the challenges faced by the modern hunter and artist in a fictional village on Bering Strait.
