It is apparent that Ms. Chicago does not live or has not lived in the circumpolar north, where life is hard and the environment is unforgiving. Of course, i’m not implying that women cannot flourish up here, but it is a harsh reality. The city life breeds women who think too freely of themselves, hence the feminist movement. eskimo power. i love women. my mother was a great woman. and my woman rocks! yes ma’am.
How did u come up with the name Coltrane? Interesting name. Am considering it for my babies middle name if its a boy. :)
great question! before my son was born, i was thinking up all kinds of possible names: zaz, cole, ezra—something short, but a strong name. i even wrote possible names out on a piece of paper, of which i believe i still have! bottom line, i wanted his first or middle name to be cole.
anyways, i saw a cd or the name of the jazz musician john coltrane somewhere. i thought, 'that's it! his name will be coltrane!' i had to work on this name with his mother for many months, but i knew all along that my son’s name would be coltrane.
besides john coltrane, to this day, i know of only one other coltrane, and that’s jesse coltrane of the state of alaska fish and game?
coltrane is a fine name, a good name, for a boy. let me know what you end up naming your child. i hope its a boy! good luck!
We move into Kotz, and noone is friendly. We smile and say hi; we offer meat when we have extra; we are friendly and helpful but noone wants to get to know us. What do you have to do to have a friend in this town?
i’m sorry you haven’t experienced friendliness in kotzebue. perhaps you’re looking in the wrong place? i’m friendly! many people i know are friendly too.
to answer your question, you should continue to smile and offer friendship. strangers might think twice at accepting meat from a stranger, so offer friendship. good luck!
shame on the state of alaska for not giving the people of nunam iqua simple public safety.
shame on the people of nunam iqua for not owning up to their problem of alcohol—to the people of nunam iqua, take this issue into your own hands—that’s your community!
shame on the association of village council presidents (avcp) for not doing more to combat this social ‘problem.’ avcp is a social service organization—do your job and provide a social service for the people of nunam iqua.
big ups to gene peltola for keeping his health care providers out of harms way.
big ups to the media for bringing this very major issue into the spotlight. something has to be done.
nunam iqua needs a good dose of eskimo power. ya think?
