The day after Thanksgiving is what they call Black Friday. On this day there are places in our country where combat shoppers in a buying frenzy trample each other and get into fights over 2-dollar toasters. People get hurt, sometimes killed, every year. Instead of driving everyone off it's become a sort of macabre advertising. Alternatively, the day after Thanksgiving is also, 'Buy Nothing Day,' an international movement for people who refuse to shop at all on Black Friday.

In the late 1930s, when she turned 10, Carol Feller Brady - born Alice Carolyn James, the youngest of 11 children - entered the part of her life described in her memoir as "the storm." And though she's been through more than it seems possible for one person to survive, her story is remarkable not only for the trauma she endured, but also for the way that, now 88, she's managed to come into the "sun" of her life, finding and giving love in spite of all she went through.

When Ethel Lund invited me into her Douglas home, I was expecting a lesson in the Tlingit language or Native land rights or health care reform or how to do a cartwheel on an old gymnasium floor.

As part of last week's Tlingit Clan Conference at Centennial Hall, the Juneau Public Library set up a listening room where conference attendees could hear recordings of interviews conducted as part of the library's ongoing StoryCorps project, expected to run through March. The oral history project focuses on Alaska Native educational experiences. The following is a partial transcript of an interview between Harriet Brouilette and her son, Ted Hart, recently conducted in Haines. In the interview Brouilette, tribal administrator for the Chilkoot Indian Association, talks about her Kake-born mother's traumatic experiences at boarding school, and how her mother's experiences affected her own life. It was recorded through the Juneau Public Library in collaboration with the Haines Public Library. For more information on the project, email Beth Weigel, Program Coordinator at the Juneau Public Libraries, at Beth.Weigel@juneau.org.

In the early 1960s, shortly after Alaska became a state, a stranger knocked at Nancy Strand's door. This was Petersburg, a small, rough yet friendly fishing village full of salty Norwegians. Surrounded by dark rainforest and dangerous seas, hard men and women toiled to make their livelihood from the wilderness. Many hugged their families goodbye in the spring, boarded commercial fishing boats, and were away until the following winter. Others moved from one nearby logging camp to the next. A few chased dreams of gold, but they were the less pragmatic members of the community.
