Herman Hawk

Herman Hawk

Herman Hawk was Yup'ik from Tuluksak, Alaska. He was born in 1929 and grew up living a traditional subsistence lifestyle based upon hunting, trapping and fishing and moving between seasonal camps. He learned traditional place names, trails, and important navigation and survival skills. In April 2005, he participated in a group discussion with other Tuluksak elders speaking in Yup'ik about traditional place names in the Tuluksak area while looking at a map that is included in the Tuluksak Project Jukebox. Herman Hawk passed away in 2013.
