Tom and BJ’s Fly Fishing Lodge reflects our families’ heritage: Iñupiat and Yupiaq Eskimos
We follow the traditions of hunters-gathers also known as a Subsistence living. We hunt, fish, and harvest our food by natures clock: to follow the mating seasons and migration patterns of the animals.
Our Family help gather and prepare the food
Here are some photos of the traditional clothing worn by Alaskan natives:
A kuspuk (/ˈkʌs.pʌk/) (from Yup’ik qaspeq; Iñupiaq: atikłuk) is a hooded overshirt with a large front pocket commonly worn among Alaska Natives (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuspuk)
Mukluks are the traditional Eskimo Boots hand sewn and made of skins (seal, caribou, beaver, etc.)
