This document contains the five issues of "Sharing Our Pathways" published in 2001. This newsletter of the Alaska Rural Systemic Initiative (AKRSI) documents efforts to make Alaska rural education--particularly science education--more culturally relevant to Alaska Native students. Articles include "Research and Indigenous Peoples" (Nakutluk Virginia Ned); "Multicultural Education: Partners in Learning, Yugtun Qaneryararput Arcaqertuq" (Theresa Arevgaq John); "AKRSI Holds Forum on Culturally Responsive Curriculum" (Frank Hill, Oscar Kawagley, Ray Barnhardt); "Our Clothing, Our Culture, Our Identity: Keynote Address to the Arctic Clothing Conference" (Veronica Dewar); "Camping on the Tanana River" (Claudette Bradley); "Integrating Elders in Northern School Programs" (Cathy McGregor); and "Documenting Indigenous Knowledge and Languages: Research Planning & Protocol" (Beth Leonard). Issues also describe conferences and professional development opportunities for Alaska teachers; successful practices in Alaska's five "cultural regions" (Athabascan, Yup'ik, Southeast, Alutiiq, and Inupiaq regions); winners of student science fairs; guidelines for strengthening indigenous languages, nurturing culturally healthy youth, preparing culturally responsive teachers, and making public libraries more culturally responsive; and undergraduate and graduate programs emphasizing indigenous knowledge. AKRSI regional contact information is included. (SV)
