Dr. Rosita Worl, Dr. Gordon Pullar and Dr. Phyllis Fast present “From Past to Future, the Marriage of Alaska Native Teachings and Anthropology”

How the field of Anthropology translates, protects and enhances Alaska Native Teachings and the difficulties arising from colliding world views are the themes of this event. (Some examples of contrary perspectives that may be discussed are: Family and social identity/DNA research; Oral teachings and lineage/video and sound recordings; Subsistence lifestyle/ individual quota systems; Cultural and intellectual property/museum exhibitions.)
