Alaska Tribes' Melting Subsistence Rights

Elizabeth Barrett Ristroph, North Slope Borough

Abstract

Climate change impacts subsistence-dependent Alaska Natives more than Lower 48 Natives and other United States populations because (1) the effects of climate change on land and wildlife are more severe in Alaska than elsewhere in the U.S.; and (2) compared to Lower 48 tribes, Alaska tribes have less control over land and wildlife needed for subsistence.
