Subsistence harvesting and wild food production by Athabascan peoples is part of an integrated social-ecological system of interior Alaska. We describe effects of recent trends and future climate change projections on the boreal ecosystem of interior Alaska and relate changes in ecosystem services to Athabascan subsistence. We focus primarily on moose, a keystone terrestrial subsistence resource of villages in that region. Although recent climate change has affected the boreal forest, moose, and Athabascan moose harvesting, a high dependence by village households on moose persists. An historical account of 20th century socioeconomic changes demonstrates that the vulnerability of Athabascan subsistence systems to...

Total Environment of Change: Impacts of Climate Change and Social Transitions on Subsistence Fisheries in Northwest Alaska
This report summarizes the results of research conducted in 2010 on the subsistence harvest and uses of wild foods in 8 Kuskokwim River communities: Aniak, Chuathbaluk, Crooked Creek, Lower Kalskag, Red Devil, Sleetmute, Stony River, and Upper Kalskag (estimated total population 1,450). The principal questions addressed by the Donlin Creek Subsistence Research Program were how many wild foods were harvested for subsistence, the harvest amounts, and how these foods were distributed within and between communities. Related questions addressed the role of wild foods in Alaska’s economy, the role of cash in subsistence economies, the lands and waters used for subsistence practices in the central Kuskokwim area, and...
