Yupik Inuit group Pamyua (“encore”)

We learn what the Winnemem Wintu people are doing to return the original Chinook salmon to their rivers.  Then we enjoy a live set with Alaska’s indigenous a capella group Pamyua.  And Gregg & Gabriela spin music with a 4-day weekend vibe from Sam & Dave, Tune-Yards, Robbie Robertson, Bob Dylan, Rusty Zinn, Hozier, and The Japanese House.
