Post Alaskan cemetery photos. Be sure to make a note of where the cemetery is!!!
Church and Graveyard at Eek, Alaska
1932, Anchorage Memorial Cemetery
Grave of Mrs. Elizabeth Rock, Point Hope
Koyukuk Cemetery is about two miles and a half above the village. Back of it is high hill. The graves are covered with boxes or little houses to keep wild animals - especially foxes - from digging up the bodies. When a corpse is buried a pan of food is placed inside the little house so that when the dead person goes to the happy hunting ground he will have food to last him on the way.
