Nondalton, Alaska is a traditional Athabascan village whose residents have lived off the land for 10,000 years. June Tracey tells us about fish camp, the places each year Nondalton residents go to "put up their fish." The annual salmon run is central to the native culture and diet, but a looming threat could bring an end to an ancient fishing tradition. Nondalton is only 15 miles from the proposed Pebble Mine site and if the mine goes in, it could mean disaster for Nondalton's and Bristol Bay's salmon run.
