We have heard every since we moved to Nome that Shishmaref has a tannery.....and how everyone in this region always sends stuff to Shismaref...especially seal skins! I kept thinking in my mind that was not possible....Shishmaref is so small and most every place in Shishmaref has no running water. When I got there..my new found friend asked me if I would like to see the tannery and that her cousin worked there...so I said sure! WOW....sooooooo neat to see!!! Seal skins everywhere in different stages of being tanned. There was one wolf skin as well. So cool!!
