Anchorage Stories

'How We Made Summer Fish Camp' by Angela Yatlin Gonzalez

'How We Made Summer Fish Camp' is the second of four stories for the Anchorage Narratives project for the Anchorage Centennial. It is set in 1919, and tells the story of a young Dena'ina girl named Ashana and her brother D'lina, as they travel from Eklutna to Cairn Point to dip net salmon in the summer. Aaron Leggett was our Dena'ina scholar and cultural consultant, who helped in the translations inside of the comic images and story.
