The Bush is a term for the portions of Alaska that are not connected to North America's road network.[1] The majority of Alaska's native populations live in the Bush, living off the land as their ancestors did.[2][3]

Places in the Bush include Bethel,[2], Dillingham,[2] King Salmon,[2] Nome,[1][2] Barrow,[1][2] Katmai National Park,[1] Kodiak Island,[1] Kotzebue[2], and Unalaska-Dutch Harbor.[2]

Most parts of Alaska that are off the road system can only be reached by small airplane,[4] and travel from place to place is typically accomplished by means of transportation such as snowmobile or snow machine, boat, or dog sled.[2]
