Notes
Leg 22 of Going Commando in Alaska. Leave Emmonak for Gambell. Emmonak is a small village on the west coast inhabited by some 900 traditional Yupik Eskimos. There are a few other even smaller villages in the vicinity of Emmonak and then there is the wide open wilderness for a long ways. The village can only be reached by air and then only if you are not afraid of landing on a sandy runway in a small propeller plane. The village has an unemployment rate of more than 90 percent making it one of the poorest communities in the United States. The only source of income is fishing but there are just a few months of that each year. For the rest of the year people live off nature just like many centuries ago.
