Nora adams, wife of an iñupiaq whaling captain, dances outside of the village of utqiagviq, alaska. the role of women in indigenous cultures is often misrepresented through skewed cultural perspective, but let it be known that nora is a force of nature in her community.
this is from a short series called #resilienceinmotion. indigenous communities have been subjected to great traumas, but we are resilient and brimming with hope as we increasingly shape our own futures. dance is one powerful form of ceremony that keeps our cultures vital and strong.
