Our guest today on Morning Line: Polly Andrews shared about the Child Abuse and Sexual Assault Awareness Month Commencement, April 2nd at 12:30 – an event hosted by Southcentral Foundation kicking off the Awareness Month.  

Andrews says statistics for this year show an increase of 107% in reporting of child maltreatment in the past decade - a statistic that has two sides: one is tragic in that the abuse is happening, the other is that the reporting and dialogue is happening.

The Annual Cama-i Dance Festival wrapped up last weekend. 

The three-day celebration of Yup'ik dance traditions has been held in Bethel each March since 1993.  

Anchorage resident and Koahnic staffperson Angela Jenkins attended Cama-i Dance Festival for the first time this past weekend.  Jenkins is originally from Emmonak, and says going to the festival was amazing.  She's part of a new generation that is staying connected to traditional culture where ever they go, and is passing on those values to her daughter.
