ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta in Alaska. Eighty seven percent of the region's population are Alaska Native. Around 10,000 people speak Central Yupik and the population has reportedly grown steadily since 1990. Economic challenges facing the region include poverty, unemployment, high cost of living and government employment. The employment at the city of Bethel is also described.
