HUNTING, GATHERING & FISHING FAMILIES

Hunting, fishing and gathering – for many Alaska families these activities are a regular way of life. That’s the subject on next week’s program: families in Alaska that hunt, gather and fish together, teaching their kids these skills from a very young age.

Award-winning Alaska author Seth Kantner talks about a gathering lifestyle in the past and in the present; a Lake Illiamna-area Mother talks about passing on a traditional, Alaska Native subsistence lifestyle to her children; one family from the Mat-Su tells us why hunting trips are about more than hunting for them; the Alaska Department of Fish & Game tells us about some of the programs that agency offers for kids to get out and into the out-of-doors. All this and a new installment of KTDontheGO.

Be sure to tune in next week for this all new, outdoorsy episode of Kids These Days!
