The series, produced by the BBC, is broadcast on National Geographic Channel.

Why is Chip in Prison?

In 2011, Chip, the patriarch of the family, was convicted for providing false information to police officers, and was supposed to spend three years in prison for claiming that an Alaska state Trooper physically assaulted his daughter Tinmiaq. In the interview for “Arctic Sounder”, Hailstone stated that the officer held his daughter in a submissive hold after she stretched her arms towards him while talking. In addition to that, Hailstone added that the trooper’s actions left his family in deep fear for their lives.

  1. Where did you get the idea that Agnes is not only white but that she’s American? She could easily have been born in Russia. She’s not white, lazy research, she’s native. Her ancestors have probably lived in Alaska centuries before it became part of the United States. More than likely her tattoo is tribal. She & Chip do not need live in a city. Good way to stay connected to who no you are. And yes, parts of Alaska do get a ton of snow. The closer to Washington state less so. Can’t believe people are so daft. Roads? Don’t mean squat if you don’t use them. Neither does Wi-Fi or anything for that matter.

    1. 100% agree ! Love the show Agnes is native, chip even said so, she can hunt in areas and at times when he can not. Her face tattoo is tribal. And roads in the town only go around the town!

    2. If they were in one of the villages that was near a road you would see cars in the village. They may not have to have some supplies flown in but is definitely snowmobile country… people are generally not able to put 2 and 2 together lol

  2. About 75% of Alaska is not connected to roads. There are local roads INSIDE villages but those do not connect to the main highways. These villages have 100’s of people not 1000’s. You can not drive to the capital, Juneau, which is accessible only by boat or plane.


  4. Agnes is 100% Kuuvanmuit Inupiaq Eskimo, and our children are 1/2.
    Shes a Kobuk River Delta Real Person, if properly translated. People identify here as “Eskimo” and specifically Inupiaq, ( In-You-pack) while the tribes to the North are a differing dialect, are referred to as Inupiat (In you-pee-at) and to the east in Canada they are Inuit tribes.
    Agnes and the kids can Hunt Sea mammals and are federally qualified, and the rest of us are not.
    Were where the river meets the sea, and all its riches.

    Theres no roads to Noorvik, except the river and the airport, our gravel pit 5 miles away is our only roads, besides the cul-de-sac we call “Noorvik”. Snow machine, boats or planes get you here and gone.
    Were 9,000 people in 11 villages in a borough larger than Indiana, with 300,00 caribou and 26 untouched rivers and 11 major rivers, with no roads leading in or out of our region.
