2016 WEIO Youth Report

My youngest daughter and I made the drive up the Parks Highway from Anchorage to Fairbanks to visit family, friends and to check out the World Eskimo-Indian Olympics (WEIO). My daughter, Ermelina Gonzalez, and niece, River Wiseman, interviewed people at WEIO. They asked people what they enjoy about WEIO. This was the last day of WEIO.

As you can see from everyone’s response, they really enjoy the games, culture, traditions, visiting new and old friends and participating in such a positive event. Thank you to Ermelina and River for their report from the WEIO!

Spread the love

  1. Loved the range of people they spoke to and the whole atmosphere there! Ermelina was so serious but couldn’t help smiling at the end. River had such an exuberant way of thanking people. Both so charming – keep up the good work!
