Inuit Culture and Contemporary Storytelling
Yeah, I mean, I think that when I'm talking about, you know lots of times I'll talk about the 'cougar elk,' which is the bear. I'm from Kodiac Island and we have like these really large bears brown bears and so they are actually quite adaptive traditional stories about the bear.
For whatever reason, I enjoy telling contemporary stories about the bear and it really reminds me of my dad. My dad told lots of stories contemporary stories all the time. He's a really good storyteller. He's very funny; he's a good storyteller.
So yeah a lot of my stories have to do with persistence or those kind of things.
