This posting on Youtube is making the rounds, as it should be!!

The 5th grade class in the southwest Alaska village of Quinhagak, located about 70 miles SW of Bethel, made this.  They did such a great job that we wanted to share it with you.

As adn.com reported:

Ten hours of filming. Four hours of editing. Dozens of shots. Countless takes.

Barthelman, 29, and his class began planning this clip late last week and filmed it over the weekend in a whirlwind trip around the village, the teacher said today.


Please take the time to watch the talented  kids, with some help from a dedicated teacher, and enjoy your holiday!!
To you this season, from members of the family here at AB…..

Hallelujah and Happy Holiday to the wonderful people in Alaska~
~ Secret Talker

I am hopeful that
sending the children of Quinhagak ahead,
the world round , with their special  Hallelujah! ,
as we wrap up this year and prepare for another
with their fresh voices, fresh faces,
that we will carry  the best of what we are into the growing light.
Happy holidays to all
~ Alaska Pi

The best to you and yours this holiday season.
~ Elsie

From us here in one little part of Rural Alaska …..
much happiness, warmth, and great memories with all that are important to you!!
Thank you for all the support this past year.
~ UgaVic

Wishing you happy holidays and joy in the new year!

    Oh my, what fun that was! I received very sad news tonight, and the joy in this video has helped tremendously. I hope the village just had a blast joining in with the kids – how could you possibly resist being part of this?

    Thank you to all the Anonymous Bloggers here who keep ideas rolling and things running smoothly. It’s so awesome to go CLICK! and put yourself into a different life by experiencing the ups and downs of rural Alaska through stories and pictures. I have learned so much, thank you.

    Once in a few years, the kids of rural Alaska get a really cool, very human teacher that will be remembered for a couple of generations. Good job.

    You hit on the second special appeal of this video, Man_from_Unk!
    Best wishes to those teachers everywhere who wake up the world of possibility for our children and work hard to make sure kids have the tools to turn possible into real!
