Unique, rich, and very beautiful
First of all, none of which I blog will be a 100% correct. I am simply just a college student of UAA trying to learn as much as I can about the Inupiat culture. I would hate to label my time blogging as completing a "research project" because those words sound very monotonous to me; but let's face it, researching is a part of everyday life. The reason I am interested in the Inupiat culture is because I am Inupiaq myself. I don't know as much about my culture as I should. Each time I learn something new about my culture, it feels like I am finding a missing puzzle piece that defines who I am. I have to warn you now, I am very random. You can't help what you want to learn, even if that means going in various directions. I will say or lean towards absolutely anything that can help me learn and understand the Inupiat culture in ways that I would have never imagined. If there's one thing I do know, it's that something such as the Inupiat culture can be looked at through different perspectives and thought of in many concepts. It is unique, rich, and very beautiful. It's amazing how we are capable of thinking things in such a flexible and complex way. I hope to learn a lot about the Inupiat culture, even if that does mean doing some research. I've actually just recently learned that researching isn't too bad; maybe it's just the word itself that bores me so much. They really should replace it with something else, something else like "google."
