300 Villages: Ouzinkie and Shungnak

Now its time for our weekly trip around the state for 300 villages. We’ll start with an island village near Kodiak called Ouzinkie. And then go northwest to Shungnak, above the arctic circle on the Kobuk river.

That was Dan Clarion in Ouzinkie and Helen Mitchell from Shungnak. 300 villages is AK’s attempt to put every community in Alaska on the radio.

Thanks for listening to AK this week. Tune in to next week’s show when we take to the seas with one of the few mail carriers in the country who delivers his goods by boat.
