The indigenous peoples of Alaska have a rich and colorful history. Come to the World Eskimo-Indian Olympics (WEIO) to learns more about it. The games, all rooted in Native history, are made up of such diverse events as blanket tossing, high kicking, knuckle hopping, fish cutting, seal skinning, muktuk eating, and beautiful babies in Native regalia. WEIO is one way those histories are kept alive. Through his work at the Alaska Native Heritage Center and in the Native Studies Program at the University of Alaska, Anchorage, Casey Ferguson is making a career of making sure the old ways are celebrated.
