Traditional Ways of Life

The traditions of our grandparents live on through our ability to hunt and fish, which include the ceremonies that accompany these cultural practices. As Native peoples, access to our traditional food resources is critical for our health, wellbeing, economic security and food sovereignty. Native Peoples Action advocates for Alaskan hunting and fishing management policy and regulations to provide for Alaska native food security, community wellbeing, and traditional ways of life. We ask for hunting and fishing rights legislation to protect Alaska Native hunting and fishing rights.
