Dillingham is located in the Bristol Bay region of southwest Alaska. Three of Alaska's major ethnic Native groups - Yup'ik Eskimos, Athabascans, and Aleuts live in the region.
The region has three major mountain ranges: to the northwest lies the Kilbuck Mountains, to the north of the region lies the Taylor Mountains, and the Aleutian Range which lies mostly on the eastern portion of the region along the Alaska Peninsula. There are eight major river systems that define the placement of settlements: the Wood River, Nushagak River, Kvichak River, Naknek River, Egegik River, Ugashik River, Meshik River, and Chignik River. Most of the region's landmass is moist tundra, with stunted cottonwood, willows, and spruce trees scattered throughout.
Hunting for freshwater fish, porcupine, and rabbit are taken year-round. Moose, caribou, ptarmigan, ducks, and geese are hunted in season. Also harvested in the summer are salmon berries, blueberries, blackberries, huckleberries, wild raspberries, and low and high bush cranberries.
