This episode follows the journey of a Karluk salmon can. It begins with the earliest Karluk fishermen, the Alutiiq people, and traces the development of the Karluk salmon fishery through the establishment of the Alaska Packers Association in 1893. Along the way, you will learn about the Chinese cannery workers who made the can, the San Francisco-based beach seiners who caught the fish, and you will hear the impressions of one gentleman who worked at Karluk in 1890.
