Gregory Andrew

Gregory Andrew is a Yup'k elder from Kokhanok, Alaska who grew up in Newhalen, Alaska living a subsistence lifestyle where his family hunted, fished, and trapped to sustain themselves. His mother died when he was eight years old, so he spent a number of years in a childrens' home before returning to Newhalen, until he got married to his wife, Francine, and moved to her home village of Kokhanok. Gregory has been a successful hunter and trapper in the Lake Iliamna region, with extensive knowledge of the local terrain and animals, and where he has traveled by dogteam, snowmachine, and All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV).
