Kivgiq 2013

Kivgiq, A cultural celebration in Barrow, Alaska, USA. The theme for 2013, “Unity Then, Unity Now”. This year’s 5 day Kivgiq celebration, also called “Messenger Feast”, is not traditionally an annual affair, but is held every two or three years, because community leaders reserved it for particularly bountiful subsistence harvests. Alaska Native Eskimo drum and dance groups are attending, traveling from villages around Alaska’s northwestern coast and North Slope, as well as northern Canada. The lighting of the seal-oil lamp, opening statements by Barrow officials and a foot-race in mukluks to determine which village performs first, are part of the first day activities.
