I am having so much fun making these kuspuks (pronounced: chz-pick) (native attire) for the Camai (pronounced: cha-my) dance festival. Abby is wearing her kuspuk while her class dances and sings in the festival. She will be singing in Yupik (native dialect) (pronounced: u-pick). In children's sizes, these generally sell for $40-50.00. Simon and Olivia have already picked out fabric for theirs. Olivia picked out Dora and Simon picked out Bears (not Chicago Bears).
Yes, Rick Rack is in style here (only on kuspuks)!

Snow machining on the tundra. Clear day, BEAUTIFUL and COLD! You could see the mountains in the distance.
