Public Story
Louie and Lulu
Lulu Nelson loved purple. She lived with her husband Louie on the tundra outside Kotzebue, Alaska. Lulu grew up in the bush. She got her news from the short-wave radio and her hands were always busy. Louie and Lulu Nelson found their food around their home, as their parents did before them and their parents did before them. Fish and berries, greens and caribou, they were hunter and gatherers. They also had a generator, a washing machine, a TV and two four wheelers for summer and two snow machines for winter. Lulu passed away in 2016, Louie still lives on the tundra fishing and foraging. These photographs are from 2008 and 2009.
