Iñupiaq elder Foster Simmonds was taught to whale when he as a child, but was placed in an Indian boarding school in Oregon for much of his youth. He returned with a fierce dedication to revitalize the traditions of his grandparents' generation, especially whaling. Spending time with Foster out on the sea ice while whaling is perhaps my favorite memory of all time. His long collection of stories, both from his own life and that of his ancestors, is amazing to hear, as are his philosophies of life. Takeaway? Sometimes, it's good to switch what language you think in.
