Alaska’s “Dance Diva” Maryann Sundown was laid to rest this Saturday in her home village of Scammon Bay. The 93-year-old inspired countless Yup’ik dancers before she died in her house last week from pneumonia. While Alaska may be without our favorite dancer, there’s reason to believe her legacy will endure through the generations.
