  • Traditional Native parkas are more than garments

    By Erica Goff
    Fairbanks, Alaska (AP)

    Every culture has a story of its history, a tale of how that culture was created, thrived, survived challenges, overcame hardships. Many cultures, over time, have preserved such tales through written documentation, writing down such occurrences so future generations can understand what happened and how. For cultures that embrace oral history, different approaches are taken.

    “We need to try to remember all of our history. We’re traditionally an oral culture so instead of writing, this was another way to remember our stories,” Letha Chimegalrea Simon, a Yup’ik Native from Bethel, said of the creation of traditional fur parkas.
