Elder Voices: Raymond Seetok, Sr.

Raymond Seetok, Sr., of Wales, Alaska.

From the KNOM Archive, hear Raymond Seetok, Sr. tell his story of growing up in Wales, Alaska.

Born in Wales in 1946, he remembers western Alaska as it used to be; before radios, before televisions, and before telephones. As Raymond grew up, things began to change, but he clung to teachings that his parents and grandparents passed down to him.

On Elder Voices: a window to the past, a door to the future.
