An encounter with Qamulek for iOS

By QBook Slam Free

Developer's Description

In Western Alaska there are many stories passed down through the generations.

One such story is about an extraordinary being, the Qamulek.

It is one of many stories of supernatural-being encounters.

Depending on the type of supernatural being, there are instructions on what to do,

how to deal with the being, and what to expect,

be it a positive reward or negative consequence.

The Association of Alaska School Boards (AASB) Consortium for Digital Learning,

in Partnership with Kiwa Digital of New Zealand, sponsored Chevaks first KIWA SLAM.

This project came to fruition with the collaboration of Kashunamiut School District,

KCUK Radio Station, Kodiak Island School District, and students and staff from Chevak School.

This book was conceived, illustrated and recorded April 8-9, 2013 in Chevak, Alaska.

Kiwa Digital is instrumental in the publication of indigenous cultural stories in the KIWA SLAM interactive digital media format.

We would also like to thank Rhonda Kite, Jordan Koziol-Repia, Victor Chen, David Sweeney, Josh Preston and Bryan Field of Kiwa Digital for bringing this story to life.
