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...

The participation of the Yukon First Nations in the development of the Kluane Land Use plan is examined. On the basis of key informant interviews, reviews of planning documents, legislation and relevant literature, the formulation of the Kluane Land Use plan will be examined, focusing specifically on the involvement of the Yukon First Nations. The development of the Greater Kluane Plan is an example of normative planning; the public participates in decision-making, to help determine what ought to be done. This was reflected in increased opportunities for Yukon First Peoples. First Nations had objectives that they wanted fulfilled namely involvement in decision-making, recognition of their traditional knowledge,...

With the exception of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people, most Canadians enjoy water security. Indigenous people are ninety times more likely than other Canadians to lack piped water. These disparities result from and maintain the colonial relationship between Canada and Indigenous peoples. As displaced people with values often in opposition to neo-liberalism, Indigenous people present an existential threat to Canadian identity, this identity having been created around possession of a vast land that extends to the North Pole, and subsequent heavy resource extraction throughout this land. To maintain Canada?s national identity and the activities that support it, Indigenous people have to be pushed to the figurative...

Over the last three years the author, along with his colleague Dr. James Kari, worked with First Nations in Alaska documenting their traditional knowledge of salmon. The objectives of this research are to provide fisheries biologists with information that could be useful in resource management and improve communications between First Nations and biologists. One of the problems is that within the scientific and management communities there is considerable uncertainty as to how traditional knowledge can contribute to scientific research. In this paper four ways that traditional knowledge can contribute to environmental research and resource management are outlined. These are: 1) Traditional knowledge has a chronological...

First Nations use contemporary maps and mapping tools in resource management and planning. Maps and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) reflect the values, perceptions, and priorities of a Western-based Scientific worldview (WBSW). Traditional Aboriginal values are based in a traditional Aboriginal worldview (TAW), which can be very different from a WBSW. Therefore, maps and GIS may impede the communication of a TAW to resource managers and planners. The goal of this thesis was to evaluate and enhance the capacity to incorporate a TAW in mapping and GIS. I developed the Geographic Valuation System (GVS) in collaboration with research participants from the Halfway River First Nation (HRFN) and the University of...

This page allows you to search all of the reports and publications published in the scientific and technical reporting series by ADF&G's Commercial Fisheries, Sport Fish, and Subsistence divisions. There are three approaches you can use for searching these publications - The first two search through data fields in our publications database and the third will search through the text of the PDF documents themselves. Each method offers distinct advantages - roll the cursor over each search type to find out more!

This report documents Ahtna traditional knowledge of non-salmon species fish and provides quantitative data on the current harvest of non-salmon species by residents of the Copper River Basin. Up until the middle of the 20th century non-salmon fish species played an important role in the traditional economy of the Copper Basin. The Ahtna elders interviewed for this project have gained considerable knowledge about nonsalmon species and their comments reveal a keen understanding of ecosystem dynamics recognizing the connection between annual fish migrations, seasonal water fluctuations and hydrology. This information adds considerable insight to the general scientific knowledge of non-salmon species within the Copper...
