Athabascans were highly nomadic, traveling in small groups to fish, hunt, and trap.

Athabascan territory, the largest area of all the Alaska Native peoples, was home to 11 different linguistic groups who lived along five major riverways: the Yukon, the Tanana, the Susitna, the Kuskokwim and the Copper River drainages.

Small groups of 20 to 40 people traveled through their vast territory, connected by numerous rivers and other waterways. From winter villages to summer fish camp, they followed the fish and game which provided food, clothing and shelter.

Cooperation and sharing was key to their survival. As hunters and trackers, Athabascans formed lifelong partnerships based on traditional customs.
