Crude Mag uses The Last Frontier as a springboard to discover larger truths about the cultures and identity of our great state.
WE STARTED CRUDE AS A WAY TO RECLAIM ALASKA'S IDENTITY. TO GIVE IT BACK TO ALASKANS. TO SAY: YOU’RE NOT UNIQUE BECAUSE YOU CLAIM ALASKA. YOU’RE UNIQUE BECAUSE ALASKA CLAIMS YOU.
