Salmon (the Tlingit newspaper) is a big part of an Alaskan native's diet, and there were many ways to prepare it traditionally.  First you would spend a lot of the day catching an abundant amount of salmon, from one of many varieties including King Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Dog Salmon and CoHo.  Then, once the salmon was caught, you would cut the salmon open, clean out the insides and wash it well.  A tip for cutting the salmon, is cutting it like a newspaper (that is how it got the name, the Tlingit newspaper).  After you are done with that, we would hang the salmon up in smoke houses for at least 1 1/2 days.  After that, you can enjoy your salmon by smoking it further, putting it in a can (jarring) and saving it for later, or by eating it right way.   Below is a picture of canned fish.
