Before departing for high school and college, I would hear my late father remind me saying, "Ellang'qeng'naqurluten piurnairtuten - Be of conscious mind and awareness (or Be of Sober Mind)."

There is a program for folks who wish to become successful, and that is the "Calricaraq" program hosted by the Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corporation, that "seeks to improve individual and community well being using the traditional philosophies that have guided Yup’ik life for generations. This approach is succeeding where Western approaches have failed."
