Where can i find some songs and dances for Alaskan natives in Yup'ik?
I am Native Alaskan but am not so in with my culture. i just found out my family is Yup'ik or can speak in Yup'ik and i am interested in learning about my culture. also, if you know any words, you can tell me them as well because my family says i must learn on my own as a right of passage or something like that.
