  1. Can’t resist bragging a bit on my own unit. When you’re clicking on Project Jukebox, I suggest stopping in and looking around:
    Denali Mountaineering (pilots and mountain climbers tell thrilling tales, clickable map of climbing routes, and cool video, too)
    Climate Change Jukebox (happening sooner than you think)
    Community Health Aides (a great example of using oral history to document an important and largely unwritten about part of Alaskan history)
    Gileech’agarookhyaa Shro’: Don’t Forget the Past (a simple, but elegant collection of family photos from Arctic Village with commentary by Kenny and Caroline Frank, in English and Gwich’in)
