As Heard on Morning Line: John Active

May 15, 2018

Today's morning line featured the story How the Crane Got Its Blue Eyes, told by John Active. He originally learned the Yup'ik story from his Grandmother, Maggie Lind.

Active had previously worked at KYUK and hosted the shows Ketvarrluku and Talkline. Not only did he host, but he also translated Yupik and English news. Folks in rural Alaska credit him for bringing the Yup’ik culture and everyone in the Y-K Delta together.
