Caribou Hunting at Kalskag

 

On January 29, several men from Marshall went caribou hunting over by Kalskag on the Kuskokwim River. I went with them. The other men were: Herman George, Paul Boots (Abus), Simeon Sergie, Vassily Sergie, Wes Pitka, Moe Duny and John Tikiun Jr. We all left in the afternoon and got to Kalskag in the evening. The next day we followed the Kusko 300 trail that led to the tundra where all the caribou were. There were between 10-50 thousand caribou migrating from south of Kalskag to the northeast.

But we only saw two caribou on that trip. Wes caught one of them and wounded the other one which I finished off. My dad and Abus helped us skin the caribou. We then returned to Kalskag because we didn't see anything else.

On Sunday afternoon most of us decided to come back home because we didn't have enough gas to go out hunting again. J.B., Moe and I left Kalskag in the afternoon, and I had to lead these guys because they didn't know the trail from Kalskag to Russian Mission. It didn't take us long because we were going fast most of the way.

My dad and Abus stayed at Kalskag for another couple of days to hunt caribou. They said they saw a lot of caribou when they went out hunting. My dad shot five times and caught five caribou. Abus got three of them. He gave one to his cousin in Kalskag and kept two of them. Both men returned to Marshall from Kalskag on the 3rd of February.

Our trip was fun because that was the first time I had gone caribou hunting. It was good for the other men too because they got some tasty meat out of the deal.

Recently Father Deacon Nick Isaac went to Anchorage for both the Clergy Retreat and the Diocesan Assembly. Metropolitan Theodosius was there as well as many other Clergy from both Alaska and the Lower 48. There was even a priest from Siberia that attended the meeting. According to Father Deacon Nick, His Grace, our Bishop Innocent, is planning to be in Russian Mission for Pasca (Passover). He will also be traveling up the river and visiting most of the Orthodox churches during Holy Week. This will be a big event for people because no Bishop in the Orthodox Church has ever been on the Yukon during Holy Week or Russian Orthodox Easter. Lent will begin on the last week of February, and Pasca will be on the nineteenth of April.

Father Paul Cochran plans to be here for a week to do some work with Clara Shorty who is the Parish Council Administrator, and with Deacon Alvin Owletuck. For the past two to three weeks Father Paul has been in St. Mary's working in the Native Ministery Program. He has also been doing wsork in Russian Mission as well as in Marshall. He divides his time between these two villages and travels to one or the other in the first week of every month. In both villages he visits homes and says weekly masses.

Father Paul and other volunteers recently finished the new church here in Marshall, and he is just now finishing some little parts in the priest's quarters. He is also designing the new church that is about to be built in Russian Mission.

He says that he also works with Clara doing the Confirmation class for teens who are at least 16 years old. The Bishop usually does the confirming every two years. He and Clara will also soon begin to prepare the children for their First Communion, which will be on Mother's Day. That is only two and a half months away.

Career Fair at Hooper Bay

 

Between February 4-6 the juniors and seniors of Marshall High School went over to Hooper Bay for the LYSD Career Fair. When the juniors and seniors arrived from the other villages we all sat down at the tables and took ASVAB tests that lasted for three hours. After the test we had an hour break until supper. After supper they had a dance from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. A band made up of teachers from Hooper Bay provided the music. They were pretty good, but most of the students wanted to have a disco dance. From 10:00 to 11:00 we had snacks and got ready to go to bed.

On Thursday morning after breakfast, we had an assembly at the gym for half an hour, then we got with our groups and went to the sessions we were scheduled to go to. Our choices were: RAHI, UAA, APU, Tribal College, ATC, Calista Corporation, Alaska State Troopers, AVCP, Fisheries, USFG, YKHC, LYSD, Yuuyaraput, and AIR. At noon we ate lunch, then we continued with our sessions at 1:00. We got through at 4:00 p.m. After that, we were assigned to go to the gym where prizes were given to students who filled out a passport given to them during the sessions. To receive a prize you had to fill the passport with five different signatures from the presenters. At 6:00 we ate supper, then from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. we had a disco dance.

On Friday we didn't do anything but play ball, talk with our friends and wait in the gym until it was our time to leave for home.
