Just before serving for the feast, Captain Edward Itta goes to the VHF radio, on the whaler's channel, to thank all the people that helped out with his whale. He specially thanked for all the young people that helped out. While his father prays for thankfullness also over the radio, the family listens holding hands. The prayer is said in Iñupiat and I could recognize only a few words. All the time I heard "kuyanak" and "agviq" and once I heard "kuyanak agvik" altogether. Kuyanak means thanks and agvik means whale. At the end of the prayer they were all happy and other people started to show up.
