Elder Voices: Wilfred Anowlic

Craggy, grassy island cliff and shoreline, wrapped in mist

On a rebroadcast of Elder Voices, hear King Island’s Wilfred Anowlic. Wilfred was born outside Nome at a fish camp in 1947.

KNOM originally spoke with Wilfred in 2012. Wilfred shared:

“Eskimo dancing and singing makes you feel good. It makes you forget all the problems you have in your life, your mind. It’s just like turning everything over to the care of God.”
