Project: BBNC Culture Camp

Project Description:  The BBNC Culture Camp is an opportunity for BBNC shareholders and descendants in grades 9-12 to share and be exposed to the cultures, languages, and traditions of the Bristol Bay region. Culture Camp is a time to come together to share and learn our ways of knowing, doing, and being as descendants of Bristol Bay’s three cultural groups: Alutiiq, Dena’ina, and Yup’ik.
