This thesis focuses on transactional process involved in the construction and operation of the Kuskokwim River Salmon Management Working Group. This cooperative wildlife management mechanism gives Yup'ik commercial and subsistence fishermen and other users a direct role, with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, in salmon management. Transactions involving participants' knowledge and values are described in three processes: (1) the establishment of a management body and its operating rules; (2) the mediation of power in decision-making; and, (3) fishery management which uses both "science" and "fishermen's knowledge." Results indicate that through cooperation in decision-making, data gathering, and other management...
Culture Loss and Sense of Place in Resource Valuation: Economics, Anthropology and Indigenous Cultures
Past attempts by economists and anthropologists to conceptualize and value culture loss suggest that greater effort is needed to open up new dialogues that recognize the perspectives of all actors present in resource valuation processes. Economic methods employed to value social and material goods associated with indigenous peoples' "sense of place" in the Arctic region develop only a portion of a more holistic problem of resource valuation for indigenous peoples practicing subsistence based livelihoods. Anthropological approaches to culture loss and valuation attempt a more holistic understanding a indigenous peoples’ sense of place, highlighting the uneven power relations embedded in the politics of resource valuation....

Applying the knowledge, experience, and values of Yukon Indian people, Inuvialuit, and others in conservation decisions: summaries of 55 Yukon projects, 1985-2003
Because this Program is a joint effort between Interior and Agriculture, these regulations are located in two titles of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR): Title 36, "Parks, Forests, and Public Property," and Title 50, "Wildlife and Fisheries," at 36 CFR 242.1-28 and 50 CFR 100.1-28, respectively. Lack of appropriate and immediate action would generally fail to serve the overall public interest and conflict with Section 815(3) of ANILCA. [...] the Board finds good cause pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) to waive additional public notice and comment procedures prior to implementation of this action and under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), to make these adjustments effective as indicated in the DATES section.
Wildlife, one of the United States' most treasured natural resources, faces a dire future. Changing climate conditions will upend the natural world wild creatures inhabit. Shifts in precipitation, spreading disease, cascading ecological events, and catastrophic events such as wildfires and floods will present wildlife with challenges of a degree and frequency not seen in U.S. history. These shifts in climate will in turn bring to bear great pressure on the heralded U.S. approach to wildlife management. Ill equipped to respond to the jurisdictional fragmentation and scientific uncertainty that will predominate wildlife management in a changing climate, U.S. wildlife managers must seek out new tools to cope with the...
Reconsidering the Canadian Environmental Impact Assessment Act - a place for traditional environmental knowledge
There is a fundamental assertion by indigenous communities, which is now beginning to be recognized globally, that "we belong to the land." The position of indigenous people, both locally and globally, as traditional knowledge holders and legal entities with rights and title to lands is challenging the authority of nation states in the development and management of lands and resources. International bodies, such as the United Nations and World Bank, continually place emphasis on bridging the implementation gap between the inclusion and exclusion of indigenous communities in public policy. However, increasing tensions exhibited between indigenous nations and nation states continue to surface. Much needs to be written...

Traditional aboriginal societies in the Pacific region of Canada and the United States utilized salmon for thousands of years. Native peoples of the area relied heavily upon these fish for their well-being, and assigned value to salmon accordingly. When members of the dominant society began settling in the area, they captured salmon management decisions, separating First Nations from crucial elements of their traditional societies. These decisions inflicted environmental injustice upon aboriginal peoples by placing disproportionate burdens upon Native peoples, while allocating benefits derived from salmon management to members of the dominant society. During the past several decades, First Nations have intensified...
