Side A content; story begins about a husband and wife’s new marriage, but how the wife was accidentally killed; thereafter the man and his son left, wandering in the wilderness. They passed by the Malaspina Glacier (Tlingit name Gwaaxsakách), but they lost their canoe and had to walk back a great distance in the winter, how they were freezing as they traveled, and the son’s snowshoes and shoes froze to his feet, and had to be removed. Since the child had no shoes the father put his own gloves on the child’s feet, then how they found some food. Side B content; continued from previous, the speaker tells the story of a father and son traveling in the wilderness, traveling in the great cold and with little food, their story of survival and a father’s love and kindness toward his young son during this time, then they return home shortly after the First World War ends to Yaxhte Hit, but are greeted with the painful news that the government and settlers were taking his family’s land, his clan’s land, his people’s land, then a discussion on the futile discussions with the BIA, how the government took the land. The story then shifts to the father and son, landless, hunting above the tree line for mountain goats, the father sees beautiful and shinning rocks there, but they are like grave stones. [Note: this powerful telling may well be both historical and metaphorical, which denotes the plight of the Tlingit and the pain associated with the dispossession of land.]

The purpose of the Alaska Rural Systemic Initiative has been to implement a set of initiatives that systematically document the Indigenous knowledge systems of Alaska Native people and develop pedagogical practices that appropriately integrate Indigenous knowledge and ways of knowing into all aspects of the education system. In practical terms, the most important intended outcome is an increased recognition of the complementary nature of Native and western knowledge, so both can be effectively utilized as a foundation for the school curriculum and integrated into a more comprehensive approach to education that is grounded in the existing cultural and physical environment in which students live.” Angayuqaq Oscar Kawagley offered a cogent summary of the “philosophical underpinnings” of ARSI, along with analysis of the issues facing modern education and practical suggestions for implementing Native ways of knowing in the school system.
