    Like most of western Alaska there is a strong Russian Orthodox influence. This is a typical set up, where you'd have to walk through the cemetary to go to church. During my visit the grave fences were being removed and the piled up dirt being smoothed out so the replaced fences would look nicer for the Bishop's visit in August, when he'll rededicate the church.

    Houses are connected by boardwalks and folks still smoke their catch in funky smokehouses. There's an amazing sockeye (red salmon) run in the bay.
