Striking a Balance: Preserving Nature, Conserving Culture in the Alaska Ecosystem.
Callaway, Don
Common Ground: Archeology and Ethnography in the Public Interest, p42-45 Win-Spr 1998-1999
In Alaska's extensive parks and preserves, the National Park Service is in the difficult position of mediating between traditional Native subsistence practices and Western concepts of environmental conservation. Ethnographic research has raised awareness of the importance of harvest practices to rural Native groups for survival, cultural preservation, social and community relations, and socialization of youth.
