Unalaska’s mask mandate expired at noon Wednesday, as local COVID-19 cases continue to decline; Alaskans who depend on salmon to feed their families are asking federal fisheries managers to clamp down on the bycatch of a primary food source; and 21-year-old artist Lydia Dirks takes her inspiration from her family, Unangax^ heritage, and other Indigenous artists, and hopes to use her work to inspire others to find healing through art.

Born in rural Northern California, Hope started as a reporter and producer at KZYX in Mendocino County. She then worked at Kichwa Hatari — the first Quechua language radio station in the U.S., based in New York — and KQED in San Francisco.
