“the land has always been the thing that always draws me in,” says photographer and traditional kayak builder kiliii yuyan (@kiliiiyuyan ). “it’s really hard to be a human being and not feel the call of the land — the land is where everything starts. aside from family, it’s the most important value that we have.” kiliii is chinese-american and a member of the hèzhé, an indigenous group from the border region between eastern siberia and northeast china.
“as i continue to work with indigenous communities, i find that not only is the work really hard and really rewarding, but also out of all the different things that i work on, it’s probably the thing where i feel the most at home.”
tune in to our story to see scenes from kiliii’s travels documenting the iñupiat people in alaska.

Wow!nature the great spirit, mother earth. there are many acts of nature that are so wonderful to behold. eagels. in my area are amazing to families visiting each others areas and nest. they are into their nesting areas especially to protect their youngest ones. when animals that do not typical help or visit each other are doing so, when the rest of the world tends to hurt one another and things are so hey wild. its important not to question why. i try to not question why. its happening and being seen and enjoyed. chiefs never excisted, untill the some what piluritans needed help. the true americans saved thier lives shared foid and taught them to grow what they didn't know how to grow in a climate they didn't know about if it weren't the religious persecution and a hugh rock in the waters things would have been different. oh well give it back they fixed the waters in maine which helps water every where. sorry about that rant. bit its true. i sometimes get upset about the state of affairs. oh well the newest thing from the toddler running our country is military may be exploring outer space. wow! yes really. what jurisdiction does our military have in out of space. none. oh wow the state of our world is in at risk. a toddler rants like that person trying to be idolized by others. he is not a king he is a tyrant. he has succeeded at things our other prrez have kept at bay. i remember fall out shelters and laughing nervous laughter know hiding under a desk and covering our heads, especially because there were the bkdgs that were and still designated as fall out shelter. way more protection than drop go under the desk and cover your heads. it not all. its not all negative. there are many reason to hit a knee on the ground. affrican americans are doing it. leave others alone unles its to help
