Many of you might not know, but I lived in Alaska when I was 16 years old. I learned English as an exchange student and I spent a year studying in Anchorage, Alaska. At that time we had the opportunity to travel inside the state and I went to Barrow, the northern town in Alaska closest to the North Pole. There I had the opportunity to spend a weekend with an Eskimo family. Barrow or Utqiagvik, known to the locals has been home to the Iñupiat, an Indigenous Inuit ethnic group.
There I saw some of their traditions and dances and had the opportunity to eat whale.
People who live there have survived largely by hunting whales, seals, polar bears, walrus, waterfowl, caribou, and catching fish from the Arctic Ocean or nearby rivers and lakes. Archaeological sites in the area indicate the Inupiat lived in this area as far back as 500 AD.
So this is why I chose this tribe.

This is the piece I made for The Tribal culture cake collaboration, organized by The Cake Collective and my dear Aaisha Sumbul. It was an honor for me to represent Alaska as a tribute to the wonderful year I lived there.
