The Bush (Alaska)

The Bush is a term for the portions of Alaska that are not connected to North America's road network.[1] Most of Alaska's native populations live in the Bush. They live off the land as their ancestors did.[2][3]

Places in the Bush include Bethel,[2] Dillingham,[2] King Salmon,[2] Nome,[1][2] Barrow,[1][2] Katmai National Park,[1] Kodiak Island,[1] Kotzebue,[2] and Unalaska-Dutch Harbor.[2]

Most parts of Alaska that are off the road system can only be reached by small airplane.[4] Travel from place to place is usually by snowmobile or snow machine, boat, or sometimes dog sled.[2]
