Reinette Senum

Reinette Senum will recount her adventure through a very unique and animated presentation of storytelling, video and slides. Reinette became the first woman to cross Alaska alone in 1994 while filming the endeavor, herself, for National Geographic.

Highlights of this trek include cross-country skiing 600 miles down the frozen Yukon River pulling a 160 lb. sled in -55F temperature, building a canoe in an Athabascan native village and paddling 900 miles after spring break-up; without gun, radio or tent.

Reinette completed her 1,500-mile journey in 4 months and 6 days. The story of this journey puts most people on the edge of their seats, explains Reinette, simply because it generally takes the audience beyond their comfort zone and then ends the story with a wild and unexpected twist of fate.

  • Californians will once again have the opportunity to support the California Arts Council and its arts programs for children through their state individual tax refund. Sept. 2013, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed Senate Bill 571 (Senator Carol Liu, La Canada Flintridge), returning the arts to the voluntary contribution portion of California tax return forms through the new "Keep Arts in Schools Fund." Donations are tax deductible and support Arts Council programs throughout the state.
