The Festival of Natives

The Alaska Natives celebrated with potlucks and festivals to thank the creator for the gifts of life and our passing, naming ceremonies, the first catch, all the animals, fish, birds, the sharing and gift giving. Ancestors would say that “everyone were the same as one people.”

Everyone participated and shared with others. The creator being pleased of all the love and respect they had for one another, gave permission to all the creatures to celebrate life with the humans again. The fish and wildlife followed the seasons and offered themselves. So continues “Agayuliyararput” our way of making prayer in the festival of dance.
