Evelyn Mike

Evelyn Mike was born in 1962 in Kokhanok, Alaska to Katherine and Gregory Mike. Growing up in Kokhanok, Evelyn helped her father with his trapline and lived a subsistence lifestyle where she learned traditional skills, the seasonality of resources, the use of plants, and the importance of hard work. Despite changes in the community, Evelyn continues to rely upon hunting, fishing and berry picking and the life lessons she learned as a child.
