2009 (English)In: Journal of Northern Studies, ISSN 1654-5915, no 2, 101-115 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Harvesting and processing salmon is a significant subsistence activity for the residents of Nondalton, a predominantly Dena’ina Athabaskan community in Southwest Alaska. The Nondalton fishery, as a resilient social-ecological system, has had to adapt to change in order to maintain continuity over time. This paper will explore adaptation in a resilient salmon fishery through an ethnographic research project that documents the socio-cultural, economic, and environmental circumstances of fishing, mainly sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka), in the Kvichak Watershed of Southwest Alaska.
