“I’ve been working on the River for 20 years and I’m still learning!” said Iyana Gusty,
      Captain of the M/V Tammy and legend among the Kuskokwim River People.

 It wasn’t until many years later as a grown man that I understood what he meant:
The River is always teaching us, because it’s alive - always moving - always changing.
 If we’re respectful & observant it will always teach us something. It’s when we quit
      watching; start thinking that we know everything that it gets dangerous.

          Many times as he brought the barge up the River, people out doing
       subsistence gathering would flag him down and come over in their skiffs
   to drop off a fresh fish, piece of meat, or even aqutaq. He was known from the
        South Fork to the Bay. A true man of the River - the whole River.

    During those long days and nights on the barge with Iyana,
 I would spend as much time around him as I could. Even on trips
   where I worked a different shift than him, I would spend my
off-time, sitting in the wheel house listening to him and his old-time
 country music. Sometimes people would wave at him or call on the
         radio to request a song. Iyana would slide open one
        of the pilot house side windows, get out the bullhorn,
          and sing a Hank Williams song across the water
               as we passed by. He had a sweet voice.

                                                       This book is about how our native schools were taught in

                                                       the lives of Alaskan children in the future. The writers of this

                                                        next several years.

            The writers state, “We understand how hard it is to teach in rural Alaska. We need to face and understand
  the problems, not deny them, and then we’ll proceed toward resolution. We can prepare teachers better. We can
  develop closer with parents and community leaders. We can help schools become a positive place, together with
  churches, tribal cultural organizations, health care providers, state and federal agencies. We can build happier,
  healthier communities, where children grow up with a positive sense of their personal and cultural identities, and
  become productive citizens in the modern world.”

  The book is also available for purchase at both TKC’s offices in Aniak and Anchorage. TKC is proud to publish this
  book and looks forward to growth in marketing and distribution.

    Iyana was a deeply spiritual man, relying on his Faith to overcome cancer and the loss of
 his own children. In my own life, he always seemed to show up at the right time with the right
words. One time I was running the dozer on the beach at Napaimute and started thinking about
   him. Wondering how he was doing. I turned my head to look before backing up the machine.
    There was Iyana standing there! Hmm, funny, how he showed up just when I was thinking
          about him. I believe there was more to the Man than just what we could see.

             I had the privilege of working under Iyana on the River for
        several years as a young kid and he continued to be a mentor right up
       to his passing early this year. Even before those good years of traveling
              the River night and day with him, we all knew who he was.

    Whenever the barge stopped in a village or he was just simply out traveling up
 and down on his own business, word would quickly spread around town, “Iyana’s here”.
  People would make a point of seeking him out wherever he was visiting to say hello
   and catch some news from up or down the River. “Where are the King Salmon?”
   “How’s the moose Upriver?” “You ever see Nixie & Margie?” “How they doing?”

 Kids would ask “Who’s that man?” The adults always responded, “Oh, that’s Iyana
    Gusty. He’s from way Upriver and he knows the River better than anybody”.

   totaling $30,750 for the 2009-10 school year.        successful and contributing members of their communities.

      One of the greatest influences Iyana had on me happened two years before I had started college.
Like most young men, I wanted to be home running around hunting, trapping and fishing. It was October while
we were pumping fuel in Aniak. Iyana and I were sitting on the bow of the barge chatting and telling stories.
     After a while he asked if I was going back to school. I said ”No, I don’t think so. It’s not for me.
                                   I just want to keep working on barges.”

Iyana looked at me hard and spoke the words that had a profound effect on the rest of my life. He told me
“No, -You go back to school. You need your education. Go finish. Then come back home and help the People”.

        Those words stuck hard - I did go back to school. I finished. I always tell my kids and anyone
else that will listen: Just because you have a formal education doesn’t mean you’re smarter than other people.
   Some of the smartest people I’ve known didn’t read or write English, but they could think, make something
                       out of nothing, persevere through anything - Iyana was one of them.

        He taught us so many things, but I think most important was the respect he showed for the people from the head
     of the River to its mouth and the respect they showed him in return. Through Iyana I could see that we really are one
     people connected by the common bond of the water the flows before us. Sometimes we don’t always agree on issues such
       as fish and game allocations for different parts of the River or how to build an economy for our region, but Iyana,
         a man comfortable in Nikolai or Nunapitchuk, through the quiet demonstration of the way he lived, was able to
               show us that we can respect each other, get along, and that we can compromise for the greater good.

               In later years, I watched him use this
             skill on the Kuskokwim Corporation Board
          of Directors, to keep meetings focused on what
          was really important - the good of the People.
