Watching ice and weather our way.

Oozeva, Conrad et al. Ed. by Igor Krupnik et al.

Arctic Studies Center


207 pages




The product of a joint four-year effort by subsistence hunters from two Yupik communities on St. Lawrence Island, Alaska and northern scholars researching climate change, the book illustrates how the two groups can help each other by sharing their very different knowledge and perspectives. It includes an illustrated dictionary of 100 Yupik terms for sea ice formations, records of observations by two Yupik elders in 2000-01, knowledge of ice and weather from the stories of elders, and historical records on sea ice and weather conditions with comments by today's elders. There is no index or bibliography. Distributed by the Arctic Research Consortium of the US (ARCUS).
