This book brings together traditional ecological knowledge and scientific ecological knowledge to present a comprehensive understanding of species and environmental processes in Kotzebue Sound in northwestern Alaska. Unique contributions include month-by-month seasonal accounts, and the incorporation of Inupiaq knowledge in descriptions of more than 65 illustrated marine species.
The book draws heavily on interviews with Inupiaq hunters and fishers and uses quotes liberally, showing how the Inupiaq think about and talk about marine mammals and fish, and how they relate species abundance, quality, and health to ice and storm patterns and other changes in the physical environment.
The work is based on a three-year research project, developed cooperatively between nonlocal researchers and the Native Village of Kotzebue and funded by the National Science Foundation.
