    Arrow Ak Hunting News: Caribou Return to the Seward Peninsula: An Alaska Native Elder's Perspective

    This news clip is from Alaska Hunting News. Discussion is welcome. This news feed is robot generated.

    For almost the entire 20th century, caribou were largely absent from the Seward Peninsula, changing the way of life of Alaska Natives living in the area.

    In 2000, the Western Arctic Herd came onto the peninsula, again changing the way of life of people there; this time sweeping away domestic reindeer herds which wandered away with the caribou.

    Alaska Native Elder Jacob Ahwinona tells the story in the Alaska Wildlife News.

    Default Thanks!

    Thanks for posting this; I am always intrigued by the way native folks did things "in the old days", and I have a lot of respect for the native elders. Good stuff.
