A long tradition of sustainability
First Alaskans have been managers and stewards of Alaska salmon for millennia. Learn more about this timeless relationship predicated on spirituality, respect, and reciprocity in the essay Deep Time. The material presented sets the stage for the State of Alaska’s Salmon and People (SASAP) project, and seeks to illuminate and elevate the story of the profound relationship between Alaska Natives and their Salmon Relatives. A thoughtful perspective on SASAP from an Indigenous point of view is offered in the accompanying piece, An Indigenous Forward.
