>Last Village of the Trip – Rampart (Sunday June 13th)


Our last village of the trip, Rampart met us with a great surprise. Because fishing season had not begun and most of the village was out of town working a spill at Pump Station 9, we only expected a few children to participate in Coastie’s visit. However, we were excited to find that 12 children were, in fact, in the village on Sunday!

Thanks to Elaine Evans, the Tribal Administrator, for making it back from the working the spill to be there for our visit.

Special thanks to Henry Wheel (pictured), one of the last descendants of the original settlers of Rampart for accepting the Yukon Coastie certificate on behalf of Elaine, when she had to return to the spill site prior to our presentation being complete.
