The Long Haul began in December 2021as part of KHM’s preparations for a new exhibit about the COVID-19 pandemic –Making History, Day by Day: Kodiak, Our Stories, and the COVID-19 Pandemic. KHM sought to initiate a conversation about how the pandemic impacted and continues to impact life in Kodiak. The pandemic was an uncertain time filled with upheaval, anxiety, and differing political stances and opinions. A forum was needed for everyone to reflect and look forward to the future together. Enter KMXT and the partnership that became the Long Haul.

It was a privilege to facilitate these conversations and listen to people tell their stories –good and bad. KHM hopes that you enjoy these programs and that they provide a sense of communal reflection as this historic pandemic turns endemic to life.
