Gary is a life-long Alaskan resident, commercial fishermen, and subsistence harvester. He was raised in the remote region of Bristol Bay where his moral beliefs were shaped around the Yupik culture. Living off the land -- the subsistence way of life -- was the foundation of his family's traditions that was passed on for generations with a focus on taking only what you need, respecting the environment, and sharing with others. His Yupik name is Yassicuar, which means "little box". He was named after a respected elder from the village of Koliganek who was responsible for the little box of treasure used for tithes and offerings for the Russian Orthodox Church. At a young age, his parents and elders taught him traditional knowledge of the ecology and the importance of their renewable resources. As a result, respect for the environment became instilled in his daily routines. Gary is the Permanent Protection Coordinator for Nunamta Aulukestai (Caretakers of Our Lands); a non-profit organization made up of nine village corporations and their respective Tribes in Bristol Bay that got together to develop, promote, and implement land use management policies to provide a sustainable base for community development and to sustain their cultural beliefs. Bristol Bay hosts the largest salmon runs on the planet and is arguably one of the best managed fisheries. He received a bachelor's degree in International Business from Fort Lewis College and works to protect the fisheries of Bristol Bay from unsustainable development. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
