This multi-media exhibition celebrates salmon culture in Alaska in its many forms, from commercial, subsistence and sport fishing, to processing, preserving and eating. Salmon are embedded in the lifeways and economy of Alaska, and the human relationship to this wild resource is complex, personal and deeply felt. Visitors to this exhibition will get a taste of how Alaskans experience, share, and savor the presence of salmon in their lives. Alaskans and Salmon is presented in conjunction with The Salmon Project, a non-partisan effort to bring together diverse Alaskans to raise awareness of and sustain Alaska’s wild salmon for its economic, social, cultural and ecological values.
