Our guest this morning on Our Community is Yaari Walker, who will be speaking at an event tonight at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center, called Urban Homesteading 101, Whale Harvest. 

Ms. Walker says she will be emphasizing the importance of the bowhead whale tonight, and passing along wisdom she learned from her Elders: "Aghvehniiq megnunaghllagtuq - Bowhead Whaling is very Sacred."   Walker also said she learned from those traditions that there comes a time to come together and work together.

Tonight's event is from 5:30 to 7:30 and more information as well as registration can be found at:
