Tundra Talks Now Online

The eight Tundra Talks and interviews recorded during the 2019-2020 Tundra Vision Lecture Series at Loussac Library in Anchorage, Alaska are now available online at a new site, Tundra Sounds. You can listen to the audio recording or access images, films and other historical material. Be sure to open the link in Google Chrome.

The site was designed and developed by University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) student Dylan DeBuse, who also conducted most of the interviews. Tundra Vision is hoping to include additional stories in the future, so stay tuned!

Thanks go to: UAA’s Paul Wasko for providing the digital platform for Tundra Sounds and to Dylan’s brother, Derek DeBuse, for developing the site’s original artwork; the Anchorage Library Foundation, The Alaska Humanities Forum, The Atwood Foundation, Sarah Preskitt and the Loussac Library staff; and this year’s terrific speakers: Marie Acemah, Angela Schmidt, Arlene Schumland & Gwen Higgins, Tim Troll, Libby Bakalar, Scott Jensen & Carolyn Hall, Rhonda McBride, and Jeff Landfield.

Thanks also go out to the Tundra Vision community, who attend the lectures and support the endeavor to bring people together through history—even if that means doing that apart right now…
