Subsistence Trapping in Alaska

Alaska's Village Trappers

This documentary is about how trapping is rooted in the lives and traditional cultures of Alaska’s people, the subsistence lifestyle in rural Alaska, and Yup'ik and Athabaskan peoples. Trapping provides rural Alaskans with food, fur, clothing and income. Using traplines handed down for generations, village trappers support traditional ways of life that are close to the land. Four short chapters: Alaska's Village Trappers, Celebrating Mink, Alaska's Trapping Interior, and Spring Muskrat Camp. Produced in 1996 by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game Division of Subsistence. About 27 minutes total.
