REPEAT REFRAIN TWICE Written by D. Coverdale Sung by Whitesnake Copyright (c) 1987 by The David Geffen Co. Unless you are a follower of obscure heavy metal groups, "Here I Go Again" is probably your introduction to the English group Whitesnake. " Their first chart hit describes a life of searching. Unfortunately, the person's search leads only to frustration: "I never seem to find what I'm looking for." Searching is part of everyone's life. The teen and young adult years are often focused on discovering what one really wants in life and then figuring out how to attain these goals. Perhaps the most important step is the first -- clearly defining what you want. This takes time, experience and a sense of what brings satisfaction and meaning into one's life Successful searching also requires a willingness to experiment. Asthe song suggests, most of us know where we've been. Familiarity breedssecurity. It feels safe doing things that we know how to do. However, much is learned from trying out new possibilities. At times, we need to leave the safety of well-known paths and walk into areas that offer us new challenges. For example, suppose a person has been an achiever in school athletics. Even so, this person might want to discover more about his or her other abilities, to tap other talents. School offers a whole range of choices. A student like this could take a break from sports and get involved with student government, or try out for the debate team. Taking such a step allows the individual to explore other personal talents and learn what other interests add Satisfac- tion to his or her life. The song also states that God can be a help when someone is searching. Sometimes, a few failures are experienced as we try to find the right /fiche in life. Our God wants to support and :, strengthen us with his cing, especially in those low times when we are losing confidence in ourselves. When we learn from our mistakes, have the courage to explore new options and allow God to be a guide and friend, the search will not end in frustration. We can find what we are looking for in life.

Copyright (c) 1987 by NC News Service Documentary features Indians of Alaska NEW YORK (NC) -- Along the banks of the Koyukuk River in the heart of Alaska live the Athabascan Indians. Exploring how their traditional spiritual values are part of their daily life is "Make Prayers to the Raven," a series beginning Monday, Nov. 2, 9:30-10 p.m. on PBS (WNIN-Channel 9). Most of the Athabascan In- dians are Christians but they have not lost their traditional Indian beliefs. The segment, "The Bible and Distant Time" examines some of the similarities between the biblical creation story and that of the In- dian mythology and how the two coexist in the life and customs of these Native Americans. The series shows the rugged Alaskan wilderness in which they live and how they have adapted certain modern tools and technology to their culture, which is basically that of the hunter. Their homes have the modern conveniences to be found in Fairbanks, 300 miles from the Koyukuk. Instead of dog teams for their sleds, they rely on snowmobiles to go out hunting and ice fishing. But these modern devices have not changed what is cen- tral to their way of life: their respect for nature and the sacredness of all forms of life. As described by narrator Barry Lopez, they believe that "nature is not governed by God .... Nature is God." Their creation myth tells how the Raven made the world, the animals and humans as part of the continuity of life. Conse- quently, they have reverence for the animals they kill for food, believing if they do not show them proper respect, they will not have luck on the hunt. As with any anthropological documentary, seeing the culture of other peoples ex- pands not only our knowledge of the world but also of ourselves. The Athabascan In- dian's reverence for life is an at- titude to be fostered in all 50 states. "Make Prayers to the Raven" is a series on the lifeways and beliefs of Alaska's Athabascan In. dians, beginning Nov. 2, 9:30 p.m. on WNIN-Channel 9. The first segment entitled "The Bible and the Distant Time" provides a glimpse at how villagers balance traditional beliefs and modern Christianity. The remaining parts of the series will air on Nov. g, 16 and 23. --Photo by Charles Backus, KUAC-TV, Fairbanks {, ; Public Broadcasting: upcoming television programs and the first people to dwell there.
