In Alaska, fish camp is a carryover of a time when Alaska Natives traveled with the seasons to harvest food. Today, it is a time to gather with family, catch and process fish for the winter. Drying, smoking and canning are all part of the experience. Fish camp is hard work, but the rewards of having traditional food in the middle of winter are worth it. We’ll talk with Alaska Natives from a variety of areas about their fish camp experiences.
