Hello & welcome to today's Inupiaq word of the day. Today's word is: nanuq. Nanuq means, polar bear. A person might say, "Did you see that nanuq on the beach last night?" You can also use this word in this way. "Man that sure was a big nanuq on the ice!" That is today's Inupiaq word of the day. Nanuq. #nanuq#homeworkbreak#KBRW#randompic#libraryfun
This little girl is my rock. No matter how happy or sad I am feeling, she is always there to make me smile. I love being able to wake up to her saying "hi" every morning and being able to kiss her every night before she goes to sleep. Auntie loves you so much Kendall Brielle #myniece#kbrw

KBRW serves the people of Arctic Alaska in a way that few radio stations anywhere serve their communities. Messages are sent to and from people out in camps and on the ocean, in its frozen or liquid state, every day there is a birthday program, where people call in from all across the Slope and beyond to give their best wishes to the different people who have birthdays that day. When a whaling crew is ready to leave, the word goes out over the radio and children come dashing to the house to receive candy from the crew as they leave. KBRW is very big in Barrow and the villages. As part of the Mayors Office effort to help raise funds, Aqaq and Ora Elavgak join in and sing, "Farther along... Cheer up, my brother live in the sunshine, We'll understand it all by and by." As they sing, I am reminded why it is I love this place, so harsh in climate. It is the spirit that is here and that spirit comes out when the people sing these songs. I was not here 100 years ago, 200, 1000, 2000... But this same spirit was here then, too, held in the heart of the Iñupiat. I feel certain of it. #kbrw#gospelsinging#iñupiat#barrow#alaska
Early this morning, I was in Fannie Akpik's office and the radio was on, tuned, of course to KBRW, the public radio station for Barrow and the eight villages of the entire North Slope Borough, nearly the size of the state of Utah. Backed up by guitar, I heard what sounded to be a choir of people seeing gospel beautifully, in the Iñupiat voice. Fannie told me it was the NSB Mayor's Office staff, singing to help raise money for KBRW. So I went over, did my part to contribute -just a couple of weeks ago I had also contributed to KSKA in Anchorage, and then dropped in to listen to the singing and to take a few pictures. Pictured is Marlena Piedlow, her baby Gary, the elder Wesley Aiken, Seeseei Pili, Bernadette Neakok, Jack Frantz, Jacob Adams, Mayor Charlotte Brower and Kathy Ahgeak. #kbrw#fundraiser#northslopeborough#nsbmayorsoffice#barrow#alaska
