This document contains the five issues of "Sharing Our Pathways" published in 2002. 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 "Nurturing Native Languages" (Angayuqaq Oscar Kawagley); "Nikaitchuat Ixisabviat: An Inupiaq Immersion School" (Igxubuq Dianne Schaeffer); "Project Centered Education" (John Carlson); "Native Languages in Alaska" (Ruthie Sampson); "New Guidelines for Culturally Responsive School Boards Developed by Native Educators"; "Oral Traditional Knowledge: Does It Belong in the Classroom?" (Esther A. Ilutsik); "In the Maelstrom of Confusion, A Stilling Voice" (Angayuqaq Oscar Kawagley); "Who Is This Child Named WIPCE?" (Ac'arralek Lolly Sheppard Carpluk); "Draft Guidelines for Cross-Cultural Orientation Programs Developed" (Ray Barnhardt); "Revisiting Action-Oriented, Multi-Reality Research" (Angayuqaq Oscar Kawagley); "Local Culture and Academic Success Go Together" (Mike Hull); "Rakaumanga: Maori Immersion School Success Story" (Frank J. Keim); "Loving and Caring for Balance" (Angayuqaq Oscar Kawagley); and "Inuit Studies: Some Reflections" (Maricia Ahmasuk). 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); curriculum resources available through the Alaska Native Knowledge Network; organizational news from AISES (the American Indian Science and Engineering Society); awards and funding opportunities; and undergraduate and graduate programs focused on indigenous knowledge.
