Nulato was called Nuladoe which means In front of Silver Salmon. Original Town-site moved in 1982 because of flooding and has not flooded since moving. Old Town is where the school is (Andrew K. Demoski) and has 10-15 residents still calling it home. The population of Nulato is 285 with 76 students. The image to the right is a grave and the cemetery sits above the Yukon River and is a spectacular sight to visit. Traditional dance, songs and Memorial Potlatch are as important as trapping, hunting, fishing and maintaining their Athabascan language. Traditional art is available and include Furs made into slippers, hats, ear muffs, coats, boots and a multitude of colorful bead work. Birch Bark Baskets are also produced. Wildlife is abundant for photography and walks along the Yukon River will take you to fish camps and old camp sites.
