Seal Class

kids skin a seal, Bethel, Alaska

Kids at the Ayaprun Elitnaurvik in Bethel, Alaska learn how to skin a seal using the ulu knife or "uluaq" (OO-loke) in Yup'ik. The Kindergarten through Sixth Grade school serves as a model for Native language immersion schools everywhere. Besides language, the kids get instruction in their Yup'ik culture as well.
