The Gwich'in Land Use Planning Board is pleased to present the Gwich'in Land Use Plan, Nành Geenjit Gwitr'it T'igwaa'in - Working for the Land. The Plan has been created to ensure it conforms with the Gwich'in Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement and the Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act. This plan for the Gwich'in Settlement Area is the result of 20 years of regional land use planning. When the interim Land Use Planning Board began work in 1993, the previous 10 years of effort of the Mackenzie Delta Beaufort Sea Land Use Planning Commission were considered. It then took six years to carefully evaluate and incorporate the views of communities, regional organisations, industrial interests, and government departments...

This article explores the prospects and politics of indigenous participation in multi-sector conservation—an integrative and proactive new approach to sustaining the integrity of vast natural ecosystems—by presenting the case of the Boreal Leadership Council (BLC), an initiative comprised of Environmental Non-Governmental Organisations (ENGOs), First Nations groups, resource-extractive corporations, and financial institutions committed to collectively addressing issues impacting Canada's boreal forest. Drawing on multi-sited participant-observation and interviews with BLC members and affiliates, I show how the BLC challenges wilderness-oriented definitions of conservation by undertaking projects that intertwine...

The Alaska Constitution prevents the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act's (ANILCA)¹ rural subsistence2 priority from being enforced.³ The Federal Government currently manages subsistence on federal lands in Alaska and Alaska can only resume management if it becomes ANILCA compliant. The current federal management system does not sufficiently protect rural and Alaska Natives' subsistence rights. Alaska's Legislature must overcome the rural-urban divide to amend its constitution to become ANILCA compliant again by providing a modified rural priority that includes urban4 Alaska Natives. The Alaska Legislature should repeal the nonsubsistence zones statute because it denies federally defined rural areas...
Negotiating the complexities of wildlife management increasingly requires new approaches, especially where data may be limited. A robust combination of traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) and western science has the potential to improve management decisions and enhance the validity of ecological inferences. We examined the strengths and weaknesses of predicting woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) habitat selection with resource selection functions (RSF) based on western science and TEK-based models within the territory of the Taku River Tlingit First Nation of northern British Columbia. We developed seasonal RSF models with data from 10 global positioning system collared caribou. We generated TEK-based...
Traditional aboriginal caribou-hunting peoples in northern Canada moved seasonally on the land until the late 1950s and this relationship is thousands of years old (Gordon 1996). Archaeological evidence in the Yukon shows that the relationship between humans and caribou in some parts of the Canadian North is up to 25 000 years old (Cinq-Mars 2001). The distribution of many Dene peoples anticipated the changing migratory movements of the barren ground caribou, especially before settlement. A recent economic valuation of just two of these barren ground herds (the Beverly and Qamanirjuaq herds) found that the domestic hunt of the more than 13 000 aboriginal peoples living on the ranges of these herds has an equivalent...

In theory, co-management is defined as a partnership arrangement in which government, the community of local resource users, and other resource stakeholders, share the responsibility and authority for the management of a resource. In practice, however, co-management has been used to describe a number of resource management regimes, ranging from processes that utilize only community consultation, to partnerships that incorporate equal participant decision-making. Under Northern Canadian Land Claim Settlements, co-management commonly involves joint decision making and shared responsibility regarding resource planning and management. Although these resource management boards have the financial and legal backing of...

In recent years the management of the Copper River has provided an abundance of salmon but there are indications that certain wild stocks of sockeye and Chinook salmon may have declined from historical levels. In particular local people have indicated that climate change, beaver dams, and human use have altered salmon runs on certain tributary streams of the Copper River. Collecting traditional knowledge about past and present runs and correlating that data from the natural and social sciences (e.g. biology, geography, geology, anthropology, and archaeology) would extend our temporal knowledge of the Copper River salmon fishery and supplement and validate indices of abundance for Chinook and sockeye salmon. Eric...
