Mary Tutarut Taipana, age 1, learning to dice up caribou meat for supper.
She was determined to help cut up some caribou meat for our supper, even whined when we’d take the little ulu away from her so she can play like a child. Tutarut is named after a great hunter, my dad, now she’ll be a great cook.
