Life Below Zero: First Alaskans
LIFE BELOW ZERO: FIRST ALASKANS follows new Alaska Native subjects as they use sophisticated techniques and methods that have been passed down from generation to generation to thrive in some of the most brutal environments. Indigenous Alaskans walk in two worlds: one of traditional ways and one of 21st-century challenges. Jody Potts and family live off the land on the Yukon River. Marvin Agnot’s days are dictated by the tides. The Apassingok family lives on from what the Bering Sea provides. Joel Jacko and family live a life of self-reliance. Steven Strassberg teaches his seven children ancient methods of survival.
