Why Fairbanks First?
Joyanne Hamilton, teacher in Shageluk, has been thinking about this question. "For years I thought the birds came from Anchorage because when we travel, WE come from Anchorage to our villages. It's not that way for the birds! They come up via the flyways...The eastern and middle flyways of North America, I believe, are the ones that the American Robins fly. They must go through the eastern part of Alaska first, then—which includes the Fairbanks area—before they get to us in the western interior." What do YOU think?
