We are participating in the http://littlefreelibrary.org/ Charter # 14814

We are a remote island people. We welcome all to learn. The barabara is a traditional Alutiiq / Sugpiaq dwelling (with a Russian name) made of earth and driftwood. It keeps us warm, dry, and grounded. The Sun’aq Ecological Archives and Library (SEALibrary) is a collection of written and unwritten knowledge for the archipelago.

Our little free library is a miniature barabara.

It is smaller than the original barabara built for the Kodiak Alutiiq Dancers ;)

Sun’aq’s new barabara is on the map We are participating in the Charter # 14814 We are a remote island people. We welcome all to learn.
