What Do Walrus Heads, Warriors and Dragons All Have In Common?

What do walrus heads, warriors and dragons all have in common? They all play a role in the mythos surrounding the aurora borealis. Nowadays we look to the heavens and know that electrons from space are colliding with nitrogen and oxygen gases in the sky to create ethereal auroras in greens, reds, pinks and blues. But in the days of yore peoples would craft fantastic stories about what was occurring in the night sky. Here in Alaska, the most well-known aurora legend told by the indigenous people of the Arctic is that the northern lights were spirits of the dead playing ball with a walrus head. Northern European Norse mythology indicated that the aurora were the spirits of valiant warriors ascending a fire bridge into the heavens. In Asian lore, the northern lights were thought to be good and evil dragons battling each other in the sky. These powerful myths reveal how people were, and still are, awe inspired by the aurora weaving across the night sky.

Mama Dip's

It’s been a long hot summer in Chapel Hill. Local independent restaurant owners are nervous, because their future has never been more uncertain. To sustain us until the path ahead is clear, all we can do is look to the past and tell the stories of those who have come before us. They can bring us hope and strength, knowing we’re not the first to endure hard times.

Think of the late Mildred Council, better known as Mama Dip. Her restaurant is famous around the world now, but it’s just around the corner from us, on Rosemary Street. It’s hot with cornbread muffins, collard greens, and pies in the oven. It’s such a part of our community that it feels like it’s been here forever.
