Nina Nayukok (Aŋŋiaġruk) and her daughter, Mattie Tunik (Qavviayaaq), were interviewed on January 23, 1983 by Bill Schneider and Wendy Arundale at Nina's home in Ataqasuk, Alaska to review what Nina said in a previous interview on March 13, 1982 and how it was written up in the Chipp-Ikpikpuk and Meade Rivers Oral History Project final report. Maye Panigeo was the Iñupiaq language translator during the interview. In this second part of a two part interview, Nina and Mattie talk about living in the Chipp-Ikpikpak area, fishing, trapping, getting drinking water from under the ice, collecting wood and oil-soaked sod for fuel, and reindeer herding.
