OH MY GOSH!! OMG! OMG! OMG!!
In all of the excitement of the day, I forgot to start the day off congratulating Pete on his day and thanking the City of Bethel, Alaska for the proclamation. Today- March 13 is Peter Kaiser Day!
Exactly one year ago today, Pete became the first Yup’ik to win the Iditarod Trail Race. Chief Peter Kaiser, as he was proclaimed at the Alaska Federation of Natives, started his year representing all tribes and people from Rural Alaska on that momentous day.
Let’s relive just a bit of this last year. It is Pete Kaiser day, but I’ll bet if you asked him, he would say it is all for you and all of you shared it with him. Quyana!
