We met this remarkable cultural interpreter for the Athabaskan people during a trip to Alaska in 2017. When asked how her people have survived for over 12,000 years in this most difficult natural environment, she replied, “It’s based in one thing: Respect – Respect for the land, the water, the animals, and one another. It is not a suggestion. It is a requirement.”
