Alice Rose Crow
ELEVEN POEMS

 

Alice Rose Crow is a Yup'ik Eskimo woman, born and raised in Bethel, on the Kuskokwim River, in Southwest Alaska. For the last year, she has resided in Alaska's Matunuska-Susitna Valley.

Of her poems in this issue of STANDARDS, she says, "In our Yup'ik counting system, we use our fingers from both hands and then move to our feet. Twenty makes a whole person. These are eleven of my poems; something from both my hands and a toe."
