Challenges for aboriginal resource management in the Yukon Territory are discussed. After decades of state administration, indigenous peoples throughout the world are now succeeding, to varying degrees in the reimplementation of self-governing institutions and administrative processes. This reorientation is most observable in the context of the natural resource management, where a major policy trend is to devolve stage authority and administrative responsibility directly to local levels. It is found that while the language of devolution and local control now permeates local-state interaction, in many cases the new institutions that are created following devolution have little resemblance to indigenous forms of management.

Traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) about salmon is held and practiced by local fishers and elders in Central Yup'ik, Deg'Hitan and Koyukon communities of the Yukon River. At present this information contributes little to fisheries management on the Yukon River. At the direction of the Yukon River Drainage Fisheries Association, to better understand changing salmon runs, Alaska Native fishers in the communities of Alakanuk, St. Mary's, Holy Cross, and Nulato were interviewed about their observations, knowledge and understanding of king salmon populations and behavior. Participants provided a variety of examples of TEK indicators describing salmon arrival time and run strength. Utilization of TEK increases the...

ABSTRACT Since the early part of the 20th century, the federal government has engaged in a long and slow process of devolution in the Canadian Arctic. Although the range of powers devolved to the territorial governments has been substantial over the years, the federal government still maintains control over the single most important jurisdiction in the region, territorial lands and resources, which it controls in two of the three territories, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. This fact is significant for territorial governments because gaining jurisdiction over their lands and resources is seen as necessary for dramatically improving the lives of residents and governments in the Canadian north. Relying on archival...

Fishers’ specialized and adaptive local knowledge can provide long-term observational data to fisheries managers and scientists and aid in understanding environmental variability that influences fluctuations in populations of Pacific salmon. Alaska Native fishermen and women from the Yukon River have long relied on their elders to guide them in preparation for the salmon arrival. This knowledge, often referred to as local knowledge or traditional ecological knowledge, has long been a critical aspect of successful fishing. Principal investigators sought to understand the historical abundance, distribution, and health of salmon populations in several subsistence communities in the middle and lower Yukon River...

This paper showcases a counter-mapping project with the Tlingit and Tagish peoples of the circumpolar north. Engaging critically with the evolving theory and practice of deep mapping we reveal how collaborative water research designed to provide a framework for indigenous water legislation is expressed visually on a Google Earth platform. This aquatic counter-map, or as we call it, a deep chart, not only empowers the Tlingit and Tagish, but reclaims and revitalises critical cultural values, whilst simultaneously preserving linguistic and cultural memory in a digital form. More broadly, the deep chart is currently being brought into global water ethic debates as a visual ethno-cartographic example of an alternative...

This thesis is about aboriginal and treaty rights to wildlife and wildlife harvesting, including the right to make decisions about these activities in the Northwest Territories. It deals with the erosion of these rights in the period before 1982 and then traces the protection, redefinition and resurgence of these rights since 1982, when section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982 was enacted. Section 35 affords constitutional protection to treaty and aboriginal rights including those rights negotiated through modern land claim agreements. This thesis shows that the effect of section 35 jurisprudence and land claims has been to halt the erosion of aboriginal and treaty rights to wildlife and to enhance local control...

A large body of research confirms that access to wildlife resources can reduce conditions of food insecurity and health related illness among Aboriginal peoples in Canada and Alaska. Yet the procurement of wildfoods depends on the ability of Aboriginal households to overcome a range of obstacles that impede such access. Utilizing a data set collected between 2007 and 2013, this paper identifies a range of barriers that Aboriginal households in Alaska (Gwich’in), Alberta (Cree), Nunavik (Inuit), and Nunatsiavut (Inuit) encounter in accessing wildfoods. The results demonstrate that the constraints experienced by Aboriginal peoples in Canada and Alaska in accessing wildfoods are experienced differently depending on...
