If you are in Fairbanks, I'm betting those are Russian or Ukrainian women you are seeing. A LOT of them migrated to Alaska from the Lower 48 about 10 years ago. They were paid to relocate to Delta Junction and other small communities and are now moving out into the lager towns in AK
so yeah, it is a cultural/religious thing mostly.
