300 Villages: Minto and Soldotna

Now it’s time for our weekly trip around Alaska. We go first to Minto, an Athabascan village smack dab in the middle of the state. And then we’ll head south to one of the best places to net a sockeye salmon right now, Soldotna, on the Kenai Peninsula.

That was January Yaeger in Soldotna and Sheryle Charlie in Minto. 300 villages is AK’s attempt to put every community in Alaska on the radio. We had help this week from Heather Aronno.
