Elders And Youth Conference takes a look at healing with film ‘We Breathe Again’

Polk attended a screening of the film in Bethel in September. (Photo by Christine Trudeau/KYUK)Native communities across Alaska are seeking a key to understanding the epidemic of suicide.The film screened Tuesday last week during the First Alaskans Institute 2017 Elders and Youth Conference.It was a prominent theme at the conference held prior to the Alaska Federation of Natives Convention in Anchorage last week“Part Land, Part Water – Always Native” was the theme, and much of the Conference focused on healing cultural trauma by reconnecting to traditional knowledge and values.One documentary takes viewers on a journey to finding that connection again.Keggulluk Earl Polk is featured in “We Breathe Again,” a documentary that follows four Alaska Natives on their path through the healing process.“Sing. Go back to your roots. Dig deep. Hit your knees, become humble,” Polk said. “Realize that you’re stronger than what it is that’s trying to take you away, and the only reason you’re strong is because you’re weak enough to ask for help.”A traditional Yup’ik teacher, Polk has traveled all over Alaska as a speaker and host to many culturally based youth programs.He currently works as a senior psychiatric technician at the McCann Treatment Center in Bethel.The film’s producer Evon Peter hopes that the broader Native community will see the film as a valuable tool.“It can be used as a teaching and healing tool to help open conversations at the community level,” Peter said.So far, health care providers have contacted Peter and filmmakers to use the film as a teaching tool in training their staff members.“Saying, ‘Wow. Can we use this as a tool for new orientation for medical staff that are coming into our communities and our organizations?’” Peter said. “Because it really sheds some light in a positive way that I think can help people to understand that we can navigate through challenging moments in our life, and that we can build a strong foundation under us again.”Share this story:last_img read more

This ecologist is crowdsourcing data from mushroom hunters in Swan Lake burn area

first_imgEnvironment | Food | Outdoors | SouthcentralThis ecologist is crowdsourcing data from mushroom hunters in Swan Lake burn areaMay 28, 2020 by Tripp J Crouse, KNBA – Anchorage Share:Morels in the Swan Lake Fire burn area. (Lex Treinen/Alaska Public Media)Almost a year ago on June 5, 2019, a lightning strike ignited the Swan Lake fire on the Kenai Peninsula. The fire burned more than 167,000 acres.The remnants of that fire likely created prime habitat for morel mushrooms. And one ecologist hopes to crowdsource where hunters are finding them to understand more about the fungi.But how do you get people who are inherently secretive about where they find morels — to tell you where they find their morels?“Mushroom people don’t like to tell others where they found their mushrooms,” said Kate Mohatt, an ecologist with the Chugach National Forest. “I certainly don’t.”She helped co-organize the Girdwood Fungus Fair and the Cordova Fungus Festival — and she started the Turnagain Arm Mycological Society.“It’s appealing to me because it’s a really understudied, but really important group of organisms.”Mycology is the study of mushrooms and fungi. There’s a lot that we still don’t know about them.“It’s a hugely diverse, hugely complex group of organisms and there just aren’t that many mycologists,” she said. “Secondly, you know, the mushrooms are the exciting part, but most fungi are microscopic. They’re considered microbes. They’re under the ground or they’re in the substrate and you can’t see them most of the time. So that makes studying them really challenging.”But we do know they play a critical role in the forest ecosystem. Mohatt says mushrooms and fungi help breakdown tough debris and plant material. They also help support tree growth.And Mohatt says morels have adapted to fire.“Fire seems to trigger these mass fruiting events,” she said. “Lucky for us, they’re choice edible mushrooms. So after the fire, the great opportunity to have an abundance of a trace edible mushroom coming out of the ashes.”Now Mohatt wants to crowdsource mushroom hunters for the information on where they find their morels.She typically finds burn morels in the areas that were black spruce habitat before the fire.There are a lot of theories on why morels like to fruit after a large wildfire – but there’s not a lot of hard data on the morels.Mohatt hopes observation data collected through the project can help scientists study the burn morels.And if you’re hesitant about sharing the location of your secret patch, Mohatt says two things can help.“Morels (are) different. They only come up a year, up to three years after the burn. And that’s really the first year that you get the big flush.”And two, you can wait until after the season is over before reporting your data.“We’re encouraging folks to make observations when they’re in the burn area while looking for morels,” she said. “Again, whether they find them or whether they don’t — it’s still interesting data.”But according to National Weather Service forecaster Joe Wegman, the same conditions that make the Kenai prime fuel for wildfires, also could impact the growth of morels, which like a good dump of moisture to “wake up.”“The Kenai Peninsula itself still being surrounded on three sides by water can still get some rain but it is much more typical for the late summer.”If you do decide to go out and look for mushrooms, Kate Mohatt offers some words of caution. She says be aware of your surroundings and bring lots of water because the burn area remains very warm and dry. Ash pits and debris can also create tripping hazards.“When you’re looking at mushrooms or looking for Morrell’s, you’re really focused on trying to find those things that it’s really easy to miss the tree overhead or the ashpit.”She also warns the area has lots of bears, and mushroom hunters tend to be very quiet and could spook a bear.And while burn morels are considered edible, some people are allergic to them. Mohatt recommends thoroughly cooking them and only eating a small portion to test your body’s reaction to them. She also says that if you cannot positively identify it as an edible mushroom, do not eat it.On Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula, businesses hit hard during last summer’s wildfires are facing another season of uncertaintyShare this story:last_img read more

Servi-Cha Professionalizing for Kim Jong Eun Era

first_imgNewsEconomy By Daily NK – 2014.03.13 3:19am North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) News AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article? Contact us at [email protected] Facebook Twitter Not only are North Korean people able to buy and sell goodsin markets using hard currency these days; US Dollars or Chinese Renminbi are also in use for the ubiquitous “servi-cha,” oneof North Korea’s few reliable means of mass transit.A source from North Hamkyung Province told Daily NK on the11th, “Trains only run about once a week, and you’d be a fool if youbelieved that they would run on time. Demand hasrisen thanks to this state of affairs, so people are making good money from running servi-cha.”“If you want to ride a servi-cha you can’t use Chosuncurrency, you have to use Chinese or American money,” the source went on to claim. “Youcan get anywhere in the country that you want for 200 Yuan.”The source said that people in Hyesan opt to travel by servi-cha in part because the journey cantake up to a week by train but only takes a day by servi-cha. The route from Pyongsung to Chongjin costs 100 Yuan, anda similar amount is required for the trip from the North Hamkyung Province county of Kilju to the bordernear Hyesan. According to the source, the price of North Korean gasolineis currently 11 Yuan per kg, approximately two to three Yuan cheaper than theChinese equivalent. Diesel trades at 6 Yuan. The source said, “There is noproblem running a vehicle these days because there are fuel traders selling cheap NorthKorean gas alongside every road in the country that buses use.”Many owners of servi-chahave purchased buses rather than utilizing trucks, as they used to do. Owners offer a portion of their incometo local government agencies and enterprises, in effect forming the NorthKorean equivalent of a Chinese “red hat enterprise.”These privately run buses are clean and popular, and thebusiness itself is seen by operators as an easy way to earn good money. Theservi-cha are mainly new vehiclesfrom China or second-hand ones from Japan, and the average cost is in the vicinity of12,000 USD (though size and type of vehicle both vary). A well run business can earn 3000 USD per month. In theory, if a traveller wishes to visit a different region,prior to travel he or she must obtain a certificate authorizing the visit. The2nd Department of his or her Provincial People’s Committee ordinarily issuesthese permits; however, corruption among Party officials means that these can also bebought illicitly. According to the source, servi-cha owners deliver regular bribesto senior security service officials running No. 10 Checkpoints, which are in place on everymajor thoroughfare connecting regions for the purpose of checking transit papers. These payments ensure rapid transit forcustomers.
