Not just your typical family outing, on this anthropological tour you will meet real Alaskan people, see real Alaskan wildlife and learn about their relationships with each other. Indulge in the rich culture of the peoples of Alaska. Witness the power and beauty of the native games of strength performed right before your eyes. Experience the lifestyle of the native peoples who have existed in the far reaches of the Alaskan tundra throughout time. Take a 2 hour ride with the Diamond family, come to our home, see a traditional Yupik Eskimo bath house, learn the stories of these lands.
Watch your children’s eyes grow wide as they hear accounts of first hand encounters with the mighty beasts of the North. Howard Diamond, a rural Hoonah Alaskan guide will make the Alaskan “bush” come alive with tales as you travel through Hoonah. Jack Diamond, a Yupik Eskimo will guide you through time as he shares his stories growing-up in Alaska.
Our hope is that each visitor leaves our short time together with a richer and deeper understanding of Alaska, its Elders, its children, its people, its surroundings.
