        Performing "The Walrus Hunt"

        This video, adapted from material provided by the ECHO partners, shows how students in Anchorage, Alaska, develop a song and dance to tell about a walrus hunt. Their goal in creating this dance is to connect with their Yup'ik and Iñupiaq cultures, help preserve the cultures for future generations, and express their joy in being part of those cultures. To share their dance with others, the students produce a music video of their work, excerpts of which appear in this video.
