The Calista Call-In show ran one hour Friday morning. Sophie Evan hosted Calista Communications Manager Thom Aparuk Leonard, Government Relations Liason George Owletuck, and Translator Ivan M. Ivan. The show started with Mr. Oweletuck giving a brief history of colonization and how the Yup’ik people were intentional divided through the many forms of Federal and State laws. Owletuck says the idea of a Regional Tribal Government is not new in Alaska and is successful in other regions of the State. Calista shareholders called in and made comments. Listen to the hour long show here.

The Kuskokwim 300 starts on this day, but the conversation was much broader than mushing.

The cause of recent local school-closures, local restaurants not paying taxes, and the idea of a town-enema are all discussed in this edition of KYUK’s Talk Line.
