BEHIND THE MASK. Oline Lowe and Laura Willett from the Rose Urban Teacher Exchange Program, organized by Ilisagvik College (IC, Barrow, AK), learn to make traditional masks from Lela Ahgook, an elder and guide from the Anaktuvuk Pass. The exchange aims to strengthen relationships between urban and rural Alaskans by building mutual respect, understanding, and a statewide sense of community through a cross-cultural exchange of ambassadors from urban and rural communities.
