Struggling_in_Nunam_Iqua (02:12:47) :
We distributed over 700 pounds of food today here in Nunam Iqua. The Emmonak Traditional Council sent down 600 lbs of food for our village today. Additionally we received over 100 lbs of food in the mail. It came from:
and Wahpeton ND
It was a wonderful day! We gave food to 30 families! It took me and my cousins and aunt 4 hours to sort, inventory, and fill boxes and deliver them to those who couldn’t come and get them. I am on a food drive high right now. I am so proud of all of you for making it possible for us to help my village.
CNN is picking up the story. They have spoken to Nicholas Tucker in Emmonak and I received a request for an interview!
