Story49: Luke Kulukhon


This month’s Story49 features and honors the life of Luke Kulukhon, who passed away in February. We spoke with him back in December, and with permission from his family, we’re now sharing what Luke graciously shared with us.

“I like my homeland over there,” Luke said. “We explored when we were kids; my older brother would disappear to the land and come back with lots of greens…”

Growing up on both the Northeast Cape and eventually Gambell, Luke remembers his home fondly and shares memories of hiking, whaling, storytelling, and more.
