Alaska Native Perspectives on Earth and Climate
Rating

As the environmental, economic, and political consequences of climate change are felt in Alaska, the Arctic, and throughout the world, we have much to learn from both the traditional knowledge of Native peoples and ongoing scientific research. These two methods of observing nature and solving the challenges of survival can provide complementary perspectives on these issues. This collection looks at Alaska’s unique geology and the impact of development and climate change using both of these tools, and features Alaska Native scientists who are working toward solutions.

Collections to explore:
- Traditional Way of Knowing (spirit, air, fire, water, earth)
- Earth as a System (atmosphere, biosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere)

The site includes the ability to switch to student view, which will take you to many other PBS Learning resources.
