November 12, 2020 / This week from The Signal

All the latest news and information from around Alaska.

But first… 

Alaskans have a reputation for their fortitude, and it has taken some extreme toughness to get through this election season. So, thanks for sticking it out with us. 

We're still counting ballots in the state, but lots is falling into place and we should know the make up of our state legislature next week. All of our 2020 election coverage is here and we're updating it constantly.  

I said "mallot beasure" on the air this week instead of "ballot measure" and didn't bother to correct it because it felt like an authentic thing to say when every night for more than a week has been Election Night. Yes, we're tired, but we're not going to stop any time soon.

Video of the week

Kotzebue Iñupiaq dancer Jacqui Lambert showcased in Biden campaign victory video

About 27 seconds into Joe Biden's campaign victory video, 28-year-old Jacqui Lambert of Kotzebue fills the frame, performing an Iñupiaq dance with Cook Inlet behind her. 

“My inner child is totally amazed by this experience,” Lambert said. “It just feels a little amazing to see even the stories of all these other Americans in this video as well, and seeing the expansion of who we are. And knowing that my simple life and my simple story of growing up in Kotzebue, there was a glimpse of it shown.”

One thing to share...

It was while listening to this lovely NPR interview with Stevie Nicks on the stressful Day After the Election that I learned about the Idaho Falls potato worker on TikTok who put the Fleetwood Mac song "Dreams" back on the music charts. I'm always late to these things, but if you need something to unwind to after a long election season (even though it's not over yet), just watch.
KTOO Public Media would like to acknowledge the L'eeneidí and the Wooshkeetaan of the Áak’w Khwáan. Our broadcast studios are on their ancestral homeland. Our building sits on fill that was once tideland and part of what is called the Indian Village. The families of the Juneau Indian Village, like their ancestors, cherish and depend upon their immediate connection to the waterfront. KTOO is working to lift up Tlingit voices and the Tlingit language. Please excuse us for our mistakes, and gunalchéesh for your patience as we learn.
