Pamyua, an Inuit band, makes music that 'moves you from the soul' ​​ANCHORAGE, Alaska — If you’ve ever seen “Molly of Denali,” a PBS Kids show that tells the story of an Alaska Native village, you’ve also heard the music of Pamyua (Bum-yo-ah), an Inuit-soul modern musical group that blends its own culture with influences from around the world.

Pamyua, an Inuit band, makes music that 'moves you from the soul'

“Pamyua,” a Yup’ik word, means the “tail end of (something)” and is traditionally used to call “Encore, do it again!” During Inuit musical events or festivals. The Blanchett brothers — Philip Kilirnguq and Stephen Qacungatarli — founded the group in 1995. The next year, two more members joined: Ossie (Aassanaaq) Kairaiuak of Chefornak, Alaska and Karina Møller of Greenland. Pamyua’s style has a number of influences in their music, mainly a mix of Inuit, Black, and Native Greenlandic sounds. (1) Evaluating Photos & Videos: Crash Course Navigating Digital Information #7.

To Free a River

Chinook salmon entered the Klamath River estuary in northwest California, as they have done for millennia, but before they could reach their spawning grounds, they began washing up on the banks, dead. Most of the dead fish turned up within the Yurok Indian Reservation, which flanks 44 miles of the Klamath River in Del Norte and Humboldt counties. Amid the stench of rotting carcasses, members of the Hoopa, Karuk, and Yurok tribes worked with state and federal agencies to tally the dead fish. Agencies acknowledged that the official count of nearly 35,000 was conservative; the true number was likely twice that.

Corn Tastes Better on the Honor System – Robin Wall Kimmerer

Around 90 million acres are planted in corn, and the last remaining remnants of native prairie and grassland are being plowed under for corn every year. Corn is a hungry crop and a thirsty one. Vast amounts of water are consumed, and a staggering amount of fertilizer. Corn not only consumes a great deal—it produces a huge amount of waste. Much of that fertilizer never even makes it into the plant, instead it is washed downstream, producing toxic algal blooms in waters everywhere along the way and ultimately creating the growing dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico.

Evaluating Sources. Dec. 25, 1837: Seminole Anticolonial Struggle. By William Katz On Christmas day in 1837, the Africans and Native Americans who formed Florida’s Seminole Nation defeated a vastly superior U.S. invading army bent on cracking this early rainbow coalition and returning the Africans to slavery. Though it reads like a Hollywood thriller, this amazing story has yet to capture public attention. It is absent from most school textbooks, social studies courses, Hollywood movies, and TV. Print shows an attack by the Seminole Indians possibly on a fort on the Withlacoochee River in December 1835. Source: Library of Congress. This daring Seminole story begins around the time of the American Revolution when 55 “Founding Fathers” broke free of British colonialism and wrote the immortal Declaration of Independence.

Disability in kids: Private special education school without restraint. What Do We Know About Children and Coronavirus Transmission? Key Points: With just a few weeks remaining before schools in the U.S. are scheduled to reopen, and the federal government encouraging in-person schooling, there remain many questions about the risk COVID-19 poses to children and their role in transmission of the disease.

Indeed, other countries have not reopened schools with the levels of community transmission found in the U.S., coupled with its insufficient testing and limited contact tracing.Our review of the latest available data indicates that, while children who are infected with COVID-19 are more likely to be asymptomatic and less likely to experience severe disease (though a small subset become quite sick), they are capable of transmitting to both children and adults.What remains unclear and where evidence is still needed is: whether children are less likely to be infected than adults and, when infected, the frequency and extent of their transmission to others.
