Book Chapter
The article discusses the author's experience as a teacher in the village of Tununak in Alaska. She recalls watching her first musk ox butchering during a February afternoon. The musk ox head low on the snow, a metal ring on his nose. The lower jaw had been broken off to send to the Department of Fish and Game in Bethel as required by the law. She had never lived in a place where elders were so respected and could not speak with most of them because she did not know Yup'ik. She had learned why many Native people were suspicious of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act.
