Northwest Alaska

Through the efforts of then Senator Frank Ferguson and Representative Al Adams, the Northwest Arctic School District (now Northwest Arctic Borough School District) was provided with funds to create a television production and a curriculum development center. The goal was to provide curriculum allowing students in Northwest Alaska to learn about themselves, the communities they were a part of, and connections to the larger world in northwest Alaska. It was all new and untried. Don Rinker, Bob Walker, Marley Gregg, Dan Houseberg, Dan Synder, Nellie Moore and many others worked to make the television reflect and illustrate the unique place and people of northwest Alaska.

At Summer Camp -- subsistence living based on the lives of the Jones family at that time.
