if you're traveling to a remote alaskan village would you try the native foods?

i am wondering if i should offer the lucky few visitors that come into my area some native foods from some of the residents here.

I'd try it ! Unfortunately, I"m not headed for any remote Alaskan villages at the moment though - tell me, what could be expected?

p.s. welcome to the site :)

Muktuk. It's a hard sell to some, but once you try it you'll be hooked

Of course! Yes, there have been a few gastronomic mistakes during my traveling (cow stomach in Bolivia comes quickly to mind) but the taste thrills more than make up for the few real disasters.

So what are you offering?

well, dried king and red salmon, dried trout, dried pike probably without the seal oil. also dried moose or caribou meat if there's any left! i'm wondering how much i should leave available not for sale but just to sample. could check for the general area i'm at.
