Waldo Bodfish Sr

Waldo Bodfish, Sr., an Inupiat elder from Wainwright, a village on the arctic coast of Alaska, was asked to share his life story because it is important to our understanding of North Slope history and culture. Bodfish was a good observer with a keen interest in people, and he had an excellent memory for detail. Perhaps most important, he had a strong appreciation of the significance of the things he experienced.
