This colorful poster, with harvest seasons for 39 subsistence plants and animals traditionally used by Yupik Natives in Southwestern Alaska, educates about Alaska Native ways that are still practiced today. The multi-agency project brings a sense of unity to Alaskans from different cultural backgrounds.
Created by artist Frankie Mercado, the poster was the winner in a graphic arts competition at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Names of harvested species, in English and Yup’ik, were compiled by UAF students enrolled in Natural and Sociocultural Resource Studies of Southwest Alaska Fisheries. The Bristol Bay Native Association and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Office of Subsistence Management sponsored the project.
