This program is your unique opportunity to live in an Athabascan Native village at the base of the Wrangell Mountains and work with the locals during your summer. Here, you'll learn carpentry and other skills for construction projects, from simple sheds to household repair. You'll experience off the land, catching fish and preparing wild games. Weave birch bark with native elders, ice climb, canoe and backpack in the spectacular Alaskan wilderness.
You don’t need to leave the U.S. to experience a culture that feels worlds away. Native Athabascans have been hunting, gathering and fishing along the Tetlin river in Alaska for generations. Join our longtime partners in this remote corner of the united states and get to know people living a unique way of life.
