This thesis describes a community-based research project that was conducted in partnership with Tl'azt'en Nation and the co-managed John Prince Research Forest. The purpose of the research was to identify, develop, and verify Tl'azt'en environmental measures for five traditional use activities: talo ha 'hut 'en - fishing salmon (Oncorhynchus spp. ), huda ha 'hut'en - hunting moose (Alces alces ), tsa ha tsayilh sula - trapping beaver (Castor canadensis ), duje hoonayin - picking huckleberries ( Vaccinium membranaceum ), and yoo ba ningwus hunult'o - gathering soapberries (Shepherdia canadensis ) for medicinal use. Our participatory research approach was evaluated throughout the project; these results revealed how...

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...

What are these "sensitive political operations" that extend and expand state power? Here, [James Ferguson] is referring to the extension of bureaucratic forms of management and control. We have seen that from the vantage point of development organizations, the "problems" of development are seen as technical. Thus, their solution generally requires the application of expert knowledge and the provision of government services. Given the institutional context in which development is carried out, this means the creation of new bureaucratic structures-often physically located in the areas experiencing "development." Indeed, Ferguson argues that, at least in some cases, the expansion of the state and the bureaucratization...

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.

This work is an attempt to understand and lessen the borders that exist between Indigenous knowledge and Eurocentric science. I contend that the two groups represent distinct cultures and that it is important to look at the differences and similarities that occur in language use as the two communicate on issues of mutual concern. I argue that discourse can shape knowledge in two very distinct ways within two different modes of thought; a narrative mode that is used primarily by the Aboriginal community and a scientific mode that is utilized primarily by the scientists. The research involves discourse analysis as a means of studying a unique opportunity to compare and contrast two cultures speaking on the topic of...

Throughout this thesis, I use a multidisciplinary approach for understanding the sustainability of the culture, livelihoods, and ecosystems in the Cook Inlet and Kenai River salmon fisheries on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula. In Chapter 1, I present a broad overview of the Cook Inlet region, its inhabitants, and the various stakeholder and user groups that access regional salmon fisheries. Chapter 1 also provides an overview of the methodology utilized in this research, as well as discuss the methods, the strengths, and weaknesses of the research as part of an evaluation of the study. In Chapter 2, I present an overview of how the Kenai River and Cook Inlet salmon fisheries are managed and regulated, including regulatory...
