Beta Cam. & Hi 8 720p
Reel Duration:
1994

The Iñupiat (or Inupiaq) are an Inuit, Alaska Native people, whose traditional territory spans Norton Sound on the Bering Sea to the Canada–United States border. Their current communities include seven Alaskan villages in the North Slope Borough, affiliated with the Arctic Slope Regional Corporation; eleven villages in Northwest Arctic Borough; and sixteen villages affiliated with the Bering Straits Regional Corporation.  Their panoplies of dances, oral stories and chants constitute a very important and unique aspect of the Native American Heritage.

This reel was shot in an area in the Bering Strait, in Nome and in Inupiaq villages of the Alaska North slope, where I resided in 1994.
