Early 20th Century Land Use and Environmental Conditions on Selawik National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska: The purpose of this agreement is to provide support and assistance to University of Alaska Fairbanks to conduct research on the history of land use and environmental conditions on Selawik Refuge in the early to mid 20th century. This will include information on traditional family settlements, historic resource distribution and abundance, muskrat hunting and trading, and other key subsistence activities. Both oral history interviews with northwest Alaska elders and archival materials research at University of Alaska Fairbanks and other repositories will be used in this project. Oral histories and archival materials can shed light on historic environmental conditions, critical habitat (locations of seasonal family settlements were in key resource areas), changes in land use and resource distribution, and important areas for cultural resources.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Single Source to University of Alaska Fairbanks through their Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit (CESU). The University of Alaska Fairbanks' Oral History Program, housed in the Alaska and Polar Regions Collections & Archives, Elmer R. Rasmuson Library, is uniquely qualified to perform the activity based upon a variety of demonstrable factors. The most important of these is that this program is the primary repository in Alaska for cataloging and archiving audio and video recordings about Alaska's history and the people who have contributed to its heritage. UAF is uniquely qualified due to its location in Alaska and its hosting of the only Oral History Program in Alaska, where the data will be readily available to the relevant public. Any sources outside Alaska would make accessibility to the data extremely difficult. The UAF Oral History Program is dedicated to creating public access to full text audio transcriptions. This project builds on work and data collected in other communities in northwest Alaska. The Principal Investigator (Curator of Oral History) is uniquely qualified for this work because of her technical expertise with research protocols to ensure this project is compatible with the archival standards of UAF Library.
