UAF - Native Elders At Rasmuson Library


About 15 Alaska Native elders from the Koyukuk River villages of Hughes and Huslia spent a week in November 2010 working with University of Alaska Fairbanks researchers to help preserve a slice of Alaska history. Funded through a grant from the National Park Service, the elders traveled from their homes in Alaska's northern Interior to Fairbanks, where they met with faculty and staff members from the Alaska Polar Regions Collection at the Rasmuson Library to identify faces and places in hundreds of photographs donated to the library archives. UAF's Todd Paris produced this slideshow, which takes a look at the project.
