Cheechako

Byrichard calhoun

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
I was offered a job in Alaska repairing marine radios. When I arrived I was taken into the wilderness as a watchman at a gold mine. My new friends taught me their Alaska ways. One friend taught me about Tlingit myths that including Kah Lituya that caused an earthquake, a sacred bug that I stepped on that caused a man to die, and how the raven created the world. I learned to fish for salmon, halibut, how to dig for clams how to pick abalones, and to prepare and cook all this seafood. I witnessed wildlife that included deer, bears, and eagles. While learning Alaska ways I was given the name Cheechako, which means I was a green horn.
