Nick Alexie, Sr.

Nick Alexie, Sr. is Yup'ik from Tuluksak, Alaska. He grew up living a traditional subsistence lifestyle based upon hunting, trapping, fishing and moving between seasonal camps. This provided him the opportunity to learn traditional place names, trails, and important navigation and survival skills. He spent a lot of time out on the land traveling by dogteam, boat and snowmachine, and gained detailed knowledge of the landscape, fish, birds, and wildlife in the area. He was always eager to share his traditional knowledge, skills, and Yup'ik culture, especially with his grandchildren.
