Henry Titus

Henry Titus

Henry Titus was born in 1915 in Kokrines, Alaska. His mother died when he was eight and he was raised by his father and extended family. He was on his own by age seventeen when he began supporting himself by cutting wood, cutting fish, trapping, and living off the land. In later years, Henry and his wife, Agnes, lived in Tanana, Alaska. Having spent his life living a traditional Athabascan lifestyle and being a fluent speaker of his Koyukon language, Henry happily shared his knowledge with the younger generation and educators. Henry Titus passed away in 2001 at age 86. (Photo courtesy of Allen and Anne Titus.)
