At the age of 23, new bride Deanne Burch accompanied her husband, Ernest “Tiger” Burch, to the Inuit village of Kivalina, Alaska, a barrier island 83 miles above the Arctic Circle. Tiger was conducting a study of the natives, but Deanne, a naïve city girl, was completely unprepared for what she was about to experience. Tiger would say that what happened to them was bad luck. Deanne calls it destiny. Their life-threatening and harrowing experiences in Alaska transformed Deanne into a woman of strength who learned how to embrace challenge. Over 50 years later, she remembers that young girl who left on an unknown journey that will live in her heart forever. She has B.A degrees in liberal arts and social work and has spent 30 years as a professional international photographer teaching and lecturing in the U.S. and Canada.
