Determine if climate change can affect the gathering calendar and natural resources

Traditional Ecological Knowledge, Vulnerability Assessment

This project will utilize traditional ecological knowledge to establish traditional gathering practices. Interviews will be conducted with “traditional gatherers” (a.k.a. subsistence) over the last two generations to get baseline data. The project will have a direct focus on the four (4) federally recognized Tribes on Prince of Wales Island (Craig, Hydaburg, Kasaan and Klawock).
