Kathy's Photos

The story of dog mushing is an integral part of Alaskan history. Dog traction dates back to the prehistoric record when dogs were first used to pull loads. Dog teams were a vital part of the subsistence and trapping
economy in rural Alaska until the advent of snowmachines in the 1960s.

The Project Jukebox website features oral histories, historic film clips, and still photographs to highlight various aspects of dog mushing in Alaska.
Topics include: dog racing, dog breeding, village use of dogs, traveling and camping with dogs, dog teams and tourism, dog team mail carriers, old trails, and building sleds. You can access the site at www.jukebox.uaf.edu/akmushing.
Dog teams were key to the gold rush and broad settlement of Alaska, including as
haulers of mail and supplies. Today sled dog races and recreational mushing are reminders of those early days when dog teams were essential to life in Alaska.
