When viewed by outsiders, Alaska has many different descriptions: “the Last Frontier,” a place wild or untouched by man, or a piece of nature open for exploration. At the same time, Alaska Natives have inhabited this place for thousands of years and exist in every part of the state, their narratives often sidelined by colonial stories.
