Climate Change and its Effects on Native Peoples in Alaska

We have just posted a significant update to our selected list of resources entitled: "Climate Change and its Effects on Native Peoples in Alaska." This list focuses on studies, reports, and articles relating to global warming Native Peoples in the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions. It also provides citations to many of the major studies on climate change. Links are available for many of the resources found on the web. NARF is becoming active in this important area and will be discussing its future role at our next board meeting on May 4.
