massacre

In 2009, Quinahagak villagers noticed an eroding shoreline was uncovering arrowheads, and contacted the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. Now, an archeological dig is revealing bows and arrowheads, armor made of antlers, ash, and skeletal remains -- evidence of the "bow and arrows" wars of Yup'ik folklore. Roofs were "riddled" with arrowpoints, evidence of a battle. Elders call the site Arilik, which means "lots of ash" in Yup'ik.
