Students are waiting for Alaska Airlines planed called "X̱áat Ḵwáani"

Tear of joy as I write this blog about a news story from Ketchikan, AK.  Students in Ketchikan, Alaska were tracking the inaugural flight of the Alaska Airlines plane designed by Crystal Worl called "X̱áat Ḵwáani" in Llingit (Salmon People).  The students watched the plane land at the airport and discussed the importance of Salmon, Indigenous culture, and about the artists.  Crystal's plane is raising awareness of Indigenous culture and Northwest Coast Formline design and art.  For many Indigenous people, this plane represents a healing as well.  I am very proud of Crystal's amazing art that is bringing joy to so many people.
