The Yup'ik (Eskimo) village of Tununak at Nelson Island on Bering Sea Coast. Gathering food from the land and waters for sustenance is a primary activity of Alaska's Native peoples. Here a woman processes fresh caught halibut, while herring dry on plywood. The racks behind are filled with herring braided with beach grasses, and some halibut is also drying on the racks.
