Abstract
This study is about Alaskan Gwich'in Athabascans, Native Americans who grow up, make a living, and raise children in an addictive society. The work analyzes three inter-related issues: (1) position of women in Gwich'in society, (2) Gwich'in decision-making with respect toward adaptation under twentieth century complex constraints, and (3) local economy, sharing semiotics in context of economic and bureaucratic reproduction of addictive processes.
