Allison Tubman grew up in Northern British Columbia and spent countless weekends and holidays up the Alaska Highway with her family, mostly in the Toad River area.
She lives in Fort Nelson, B.C., and has a deep love for her aboriginal culture. Allison is fascinated by the wildlife and wilderness around her and recently obtained her trapper's license. It is a love she hopes to pass on to younger generations.
As her elders passed away, Allison recognized the importance of preserving their heritage and ensuring her children and the coming generations would remember the hardships and the experiences their ancestors lived. With the death of her grandmother and the birth of her first child, Allison's desire to preserve this history grew stronger than ever.
The McDonalds: The Lives and Legends of a Kaska Dena Family is dedicated to her family past, present and future.
