Alaskans attend Inauguration Day events

The President ceremoniously swore into his second term on Monday. He spoke to a crowd on the National Mall of about a million people, plus tens of millions more tuned in at home.

And while most people watched from afar, some lucky Alaskans were there to witness to it firsthand.

The fifty-seventh presidential inauguration is winding down. The last inaugural ball is Tuesday night after festivities started over the weekend. And, as APRN’s Peter Granitz reports, amid all the pomp and circumstance, some Alaska Natives are showing the rest of the country their heritage and traditions.

Below are a picture and video of the administration of the official and ceremonial oath of office as provided by the White House:
