Adventures, misadventures, and everyday inspiration out of the ‘bue
On the onset of 2016, the Out of the ‘bue Blog was created to document and share experiences out of the ‘bue—the ‘bue being Kotzebue. I strive every day to show others that you are not only valuable as an individual but that you can do anything you want to in this wonderful, unpredictable, and short life.
This blog will revolve around some main themes: Iñupiat Ilitqusiat, Trekking around Alaska, Everyday Health & Wellness, Professional Tips & Tricks, and Stories of living and growing up in Alaska.

Hello my name is Rebekah! Aagnauruq is my Inupiaq name given to me by my late mother, it means Little Woman. I was born and raised in a small town 33 miles above the Arctic Circle: Kotzebue, Alaska. A decade ago I graduated High School I went out of the ‘bue and off to explore the world, and myself. I am a girl of the tundra, salt water ocean, and rocky beaches; out of the ’bue capturing stories from my everyday extraordinary life in Alaska.
