Quayana, Pamyau & Students!
This cd reopened the doors to all of my seasons on the Y-K Delta and its waterways. The truth? I have become homesick for Western Alaska! Quayana for this!

Great experience in Yup'ik music.
You feel you are one the singers and drummers. The drum beat becomes your heart beat. Your feet will automatically pick up the beat. You can feel the wind, the cold and hear the kayak and paddle gliding through the water.


Every music makes me proud of Who I Am
Cayuurlakunguur! I am hoping there is more recording internationally! Inupiaq, Inuit, Iupiaq, Athabascan, Shimshian, Tlingit, Haide, Aleut, Sugpiaq, Aluutiq, and Tribal Bloods in American Continent combined in one album. We are proud people! ONE CD will bring ONE Voice. Proud, Very Proud Voice. Cauyaqaa Nauwaa?

Very Good Job Ossie, Steve, and the rest of you guys.
This is excellent. I haven't heard this good quality Yup'ik music before. I mean how did you guys put all of the singers on there??? Well very good job people. I can't wait till the next CD comes out! :)


In my opinion, the CD is just brilliant. Great job.
