Dr. John Pingayak, who is the Cultural Heritage Coordinator at the Kashunamuit School District in Chevak and also serves on the KuC Advisory Council, was the first of many speakers to both congratulate and challenge the graduates.
Sprinkling his remarks with many Cup'ik and Yup'ik words to emphasize his admonition to value their heritage, Dr. Pingayak urged them not to regard their culture as a second remedy, but a first guide. Many times he heard the words, "Words will shape a young man as to how he will be in the future.
John did not think he was college-bound, but in 1972 he nevertheless started college with little money and few avenues of support. He never missed a class and now uses that education to teach young people. Some of the things that have shored up Dr. Pingayak throughout the years are his faith in his Creator, the rules of the ancestors and the conviction that Cup'ik and Yup'ik people can do anything they set their minds to.
Dr. Pingayak gave the audience two goals toward which they should strive.
