Louise Paul

Louise Paul was a Han Athabascan elder from the village of Eagle, Alaska. Her parents were Eliza and Joe Malcolm. She grew up following a traditional subsistence lifestyle of hunting, trapping, fishing, and berry picking in the upper Yukon River region. After she married, Josie Paul, they lived for some time on Snare Creek and at the Coal Creek Mining camp where he worked. In her later years, Louise Paul was known for her expertise in her Native Han language and worked with linguists at the University of Alaska Fairbanks to document the language. Louise Paul passed away in 1997.
