The last person born in the traditional village of Kashega has died.
Eva Tcheripanoff grew up in the small Unangax̂ community on Unalaska Island and spent the 1930s hunting foxes, eating dry fish, and playing with homemade stone dolls.
That all changed during World War II, when Kashega was evacuated and never resettled. But as KUCB's Laura Kraegel reports, Tcheripanoff came through the upheaval and lived a long life of 90 years.
