Alaskan Native Science Commission

Orville Huntington is a wildlife biologist, hunter, and community leader, living in the remote Athabascan community of Huslia. While preferring to stay home with "my girls" (his two daughters) he has served on the Alaskan Native Science Commission, and many state and Alaskan native corporation advisory boards, and is committed to education and outreach projects which help non-Alaskans understand the culture and subsistence lifestyle of his people. He has given keynotes at Arctic Forums and spoken on panels at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. He is a member of a well-known Athabascan family: his uncle, Sydney Huntington, wrote the fascinating "Shadows Along the Koyukuk", a classic of life along the river that runs through Huslia.
