Volunteer Ryan Conarro produces a series of KNOM Profiles on the impact of modern technology in bush Alaska.

One of the persons Ryan speaks with is Barb Pungowiyi, coordinator of Native programs for Nome Public Schools. “Some people might say technology is one of the reasons why our culture is being lost,” Pungowiyi tells Ryan, “but I think it can be used to an advantage.”
