We highly recommend “Our Grandparents’ Names on the Land,” an exploration of Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian place naming in SE Alaska because names matter, history matters, and recognition of both of those facts, in the face of centuries spent naming features and locations for white royals, wealthy white sponsors of exploration and dead white politicians, is long overdue.📚
Great quote: “While the English name implies only the presence of glaciers, the Tlingit name denotes a historical, geographic process - a process of glacial recession and the consequent formation of a bay in its place.”📚
Wow, what a great new development! I am so proud to see Lowe's doing more each day to show our Military employees and customers how much they mean to us. “We look forward to working closely with each organization to serve the military community through programs focused on safe, affordable housing and transitioning military into dynamic careers.” said Joe McFarland, U.S. Marines veteran and Lowe’s executive vice president of stores.

Join me on an Arctic adventure with @natgeoexpeditions! We’re headed to the Bering Strait and the Russian High Arctic. Onboard the National Geographic Orion, I’ll be your photography expert and teacher for the expedition. Along the way we’ll visit Siberian Yup’ik villages in Arctic Russia, see a polar bear nursery on Wrangel Island, and cross the Bering Sea on an ice-class vessel! You can find out more at the link my bio. #arctic#alaska#siberia#wrangel#expedition⠀
A block in the road doesn’t end the journey.
We made mistakes. We learned from them. We kept driving.
We had to a decision to make; now or never and there hasn’t been a day that’s gone by that I’ve regretted choosing now. (Click link in my bio to follow this adventure ✌️)
