Marjorie Tahbone, 28, demonstrates the traditional method of filleting a fish using an ulu during The Gathering, a family-friendly community health fair hosted by the Southcentral Foundation at the Egan Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017.

"It's all about identity and who we are as Inuit people," said Tahbone. "I want to make sure that I'm a positive role model for the younger generation … or at least help people have a better understanding of what it means to be in a subsistence lifestyle."
