The Author mentions an island that my grandfather is from but, that is not what you call the "arctic circle". The arctic circle is further up and I believed closer to Canada. Otherwise, I did find some information about my family history and I am seeking more to find since it is a part of who I am. The Alaskan Island my grandfather, Andrew Noatak, is from is Nunivak Island, AK.
