Networks: from nature to society
April 15-17, 2015 Bethel, AK
Hosted by the Kuskokwim campus of the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the 2015 Western Alaska Interdisciplinary Science Conference will bring together researchers, Elders, educators, students, community leaders, and community members; to share concerns and insights about issues relevant to rural Alaska. This conference is a platform for reporting on and discussing regional research efforts as well as traditional knowledge, providing an interdisciplinary approach to inquiry and discussion.
Participants will explore connections between humans and the environment—to begin to better understand the unique networks that exist within and around communities in rural Alaska. We invite those who have an interest in any aspect of life in rural Alaska to join in this gathering, because we value each perspective that attendees bring as an integral part of the network. We are all coming to realize that we are stronger and better able to move into the future when we cast a wider net—sharing across disciplines/generations/geographic location/cultures.
Visit 8th Western Alaska Interdisciplinary Science Conference and Forum (2015) for more information on the conference.
Draft Yukon-Kuskokwim plant guide:
Check out our new guide to traditional uses of plants for food, medicine and other purposes in our region. We thank the 31 elders from 13 local villages who shared their knowledge and everyone who helped put together this book. This book is still a draft and we are putting it up as web-based document only for a year. We are asking for comments from the public about how we can improve this book.
If there is anything we need to correct or anything you think we should add please email editor Kevin Jernigan at firstname.lastname@example.org
