Short Documentary: Heimo's Arctic Refuge

Far Out - Heimo's Arctic Refuge - Full Version

This is a good film to watch for all you who would like to live off the land. The video documents the life of a man who lives above the Arctic Circle in Alaska with his wife. Some highlights include Heimo's opinion on civilization, hunting a bear, and trapping some rabbits. Although, the only sad part is he tosses away all the offal and cooks his meat to the crisp!  -\


"In 1980, Jimmy Carter established the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in the Alaskan Interior, cutting off 19 million acres of prime boreal wilderness from the mitts of fur trappers, oil tycoons, and would-be lodge owners alike. Only six families of white settlers were grandfathered in and allowed to keep cabins in the refuge—of them, only one still stays there year-round living off the land. His name is Heimo Korth, and he is basically the Omega Man of America’s Final Frontier.

Raised in suburban Wisconsin, Heimo set off in his teens to the Alaskan Bush to pursue the Davy Crockett lifestyle in more or less the only place it was still possible. Amid numerous setbacks and misadventures, Heimo gradually learned how to master his terrain, provide for his Eskimo wife, and rear children in one of the most inhospitable environments in North America."
