“Day in Our Bay” is a unique community initiative that showcases the lives and feelings of the people of Alaska’s Bristol Bay region.

Bristol Bay Native Corporation (BBNC) invited its shareholders to share their voices, views and values through a digital storytelling competition shot on October 15, 2011. Sixty-two entries were submitted from across the region as shareholders of all ages took part in this innovative competition. The entries were edited and compiled into a short film.

This guide gives additional background about the project and film. Featured Villages:

Aleknagik • Chignik Lake • Clarks Point • Dillingham • Ekwok • Kanakanak • Koliganek • Kokhanok • Levelock • Manokotak • Naknek • New Stuyahok • Pedro Bay • Port Alsworth • Togiak
