EVENT TONIGHT! Wednesday, February 1: Northern Voices-Life on the Colville River

Ever wonder what the North Slope was like before oil and gas development? Mark and Denise Wartes have lived and visited along the Colville River and its tributaries since the early 1950's. They will talk about their experiences hunting, trapping, fishing, and starting a family from the Arctic Ocean to the Southern Brooks Range. In the tradition of respecting their Inupiat elder teachers, they wish to share this lifestyle with others.

In the tradition of respecting their Inupiat elder teachers, they wish to share this lifestyle with others.  Mark and Denise will bring parkas, mukluks, Native and personal handmade arts and crafts for viewing.

Join us for this remarkable opportunity to think beyond resource development about the rich ways of life that the arctic has supported since time immemorial.
