This painting features a family hanging salmon to dry. A raven has come to steal fish and is giving one of the boys quite a laugh. They are dressed in historical clothing which was typically made from bird skins or otter and squirrel pelts. Drying and smoking fish was crucial to survival during the long winter months. Women used slate knifes, known as ulus, to clean and split fish, which they hung by the tail on wooden racks.
