Holiday Video: Hallelujah Chorus -Quinhagak, Alaska


I just saw the “Climate and Health E-News” newsletter from the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium and they mentioned their favourite holiday video “Hallelujah Chorus -Kuinerrarmiut Elitnaurviat”.
It was filmed in Quinhagak a predominantly Yupik village in western Alaska, population 500.

Here’s what they said about it the newsletter:

“Hallelujah Chorus -Kuinerrarmiut Elitnaurviat 5th Grade (December 20, 2010) This 3 minute clip from Quinhagak, Alaska was a school project intended for the other Yupiq villages. Much to the villagers’ shock, over a million people have viewed it.”

Definately worth watching if you haven’t seen it already. To watch, click here.

Happy holidays!
