I say that it is Hunting-and-Gathering. Starving people do not have much interest in sex. (I went on a 5-day fast once so I have some personal experience with that statement.)

What say other Alaskans?

I've gone a heck of a lot more than 5 days without sex!

I'd go with Farming. God put Adam in charge of the garden.

Given the number who voted for Miller, apparently a lot of Alaskans don't think.

Alaskans only "think" when they vote Democrat?

Going back to the OP: I would say hunting and gathering is the oldest profession.

Not an Alaskan but I'd say the oldest profession is politics. It all began with a smooth-talkin' snake in an apple tree!
