Oral History Interviews

Since 1997, ATA has been recording 'oral history' interviews with veteran trappers and hunters from around the state. The Outdoor Heritage Foundation of Alaska is also a partner in this effort.

The primary purpose of the project is to preserve the memories of people who live an active outdoor lifestyle. In this way, we can help maintain the traditions of consumptive use. The secondary purpose is to share these memories with a wide audience. Material gathered during the interviews has appeared in both newspaper and magazine articles. Excerpts of the audio recordings have been broadcast on radio. Audio CD copies and downloadable audio MP3 files are available for sale on this web site.

Read some of the brief biographic sketches in this section. Select an audio CD or MP3 file. We're sure that you will enjoy hearing stories of life on The Last Frontier.
