NSBSD School Board President, Debby Dahl Edwardson’s 2009 novel, Blessing’s Bead, is a "rare and beautiful book," according to a recent review in the Washington Post. "It’s a short read that nonetheless makes many far-reaching connections, like a folk tale or a legend, wrapped in a tough but straightforward narrative, leaving echoes that linger long after and in unanticipated ways."

Tikigaq School was established at Point Hope in the 1960s by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. A new school building was built in 1980. The school gets its name from an Iñupiaq word for a geographic point that is located near Point Hope. Point Hope has always had a long tradition of being known for a whaling village. Thus the school mascot, the Harpooners. The village holds a whaling festival every spring to celebrate the whaling season. Glenn Blake will be the Principal, and Jeremy Millard will be Assistant Principal for the 2013/2014 school year. Stop in and visit us anytime.
