A large group of inmates, family members and staff participated in the annual Potlatch celebration at the Hudson Correctional Facility. Moose soup was specially prepared by a small group of Native Elders who traveled to the event from Fairbanks. About 50 pounds of moose meat was donated by community members in the Interior. Also present was a documentary film crew under the direction of Visual Sociologist David Adler of St. Francis University in Brooklyn, N.Y. The topic of the film is inmate art.
