Elder Voices: Rose Anna Dan Waghiyi

Stebbins

In January 2006, KNOM recorded an interview with Rose Anna Dan Waghiyi that will air again this week as a part of our Elder Voices series. Rose Anna was born in 1933. She remembers growing up listening to her grandmother’s stories and helping local hunters with their catch.

She also shares stories of learning to Eskimo dance, and of teaching others how to dance. “When I’m dancing really hard, it’s only the song, drum, and me,” she says.

This episode of Elder Voices airs Wednesday, May 24th, at 11am and 6pm. Elder Voices: a window to the past, a door to the future.
