Dear North is an Alaska Native company with deep roots in Glacier Bay.
We live in Southeast Alaska, where the weather is a bit less fierce. It's a rainforest. Very wet, green, luscious and abundant. It’s our Alaska, and we enjoy the challenges – and wonders – of living in the far North every day.
We are Huna Totem Corporation, an Alaska Native company founded in 1973. We have been in harmony with our land for over 10,000 years. We are creative, entrepreneurial, and innovative, while still guided by ancient traditions of sustainability and stewardship. Our ancestors taught us to take only what we need and waste nothing, to respect the fish, plants and animals that nourish us.
Our culture is more about sharing than ownership. We have a connection to our land and to each other that guides and enriches our way of life. We take care of each other and welcome our guests with open arms. And we always come to each other’s house or celebrations with a gift, something we have harvested, fish, made and preserved.
There’s a crisp quality to the air, the water, the food. This comes from a magical combination – the purity of the source and the surge of sunlight in our warm months. We grow, gather, fish, harvest and craft – offering you wild salmon that is extremely nourshing and deliciously infused with vivid Alaska flavors.
Our oceans are teeming with life. We are bringing you salmon that’s beyond your wild-harvested dreams. We are crafting these offerings slowly and carefully, drawing on traditional recipes and imaginative uses of our local flavors. Here is ultra-nutritious, utterly amazing seafood and snacks you can weave into your life.
