My name is Howard R. Tinker, Yup'ik instructor at Akiuk Memorial School in Kasigluk, AK. I teach grades 3 to 12. I've been teaching since 1987, starting out as a special ed. aide, and then assigned to Yugtun instruction when the schools separated to become two separate schools. I've also coached basketball and still coach Native Youth Olympics
I love to hunt, fish, and gather what nature has to provide, especially during summer, as I was taught to gather when they become available and plentiful, to prepare for the coming winter.
