Interior Alaska Native elder Poldine Carlo has died at the age of 97. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, Carlo was a lifelong advocate for Native rights, culture and language.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
