Alakanuk – Maxine

Maxine is the only fisherwoman of Fish Tales. She comes from Alakanuk, a village in the western part of Alaska, on the banks of the Yukon and the home of the Yup’ik-Eskimos. Maxine grew up with fish. When she was nine, she caught her first fish. And at fourteen she bought her own fishing license.
