Fireweed at Exit Glacier

flower-glacierAs the glacier at Kenai Fjords continues to recede, it leaves in it’s wake a desolate landscape of steep cliffs and jagged rocks.  However, over time, plants do begin to grow, and Fireweed is one of the first plants to lay down roots.

The Yupik Tradition

Show Respect to others

Each person has a special gift

share what you have

Giving makes you richer

Know who you are

you are a reflection on your family

Accept what life brings

You cannot control many things

Have patience

some things cannot be rushed

Live carefully

What you do will come back to you

Take care of others

You cannot live without them

Honor your elder

They show you the way in life

Pray for guidance

Many things are not known

See connections

All things are related
