Anchorage/ Western Alaska villages
I have been living and working here in Alaska for 8 years now. Nearly 5 years in my current position. I work with 45 villages in western Alaska supporting local volunteers as well as identifying potential volunteers with Girl Scouts. The program is village-based (not led by teachers who tend to not be from the region and turn over quickly) and rooted in traditional
skills and subsistence living. I am pretty sure Kongiganak Girl Scouts are the only group who have ever made fermented fish heads as a Girl Scout activity!
