The Northern Bering Sea: Our Way of Life, Now Available

The book cover for The Northern Bering Sea: Our Way of Life

The Exchange for Local Observations and Knowledge of the Arctic project at the National Snow and Ice Data Center is pleased to announce the release of a website focused on the cultural and ecological significance of the northern Bering Sea.

The Northern Bering Sea: Our Way of Life highlights large hunting and fishing areas, overlayed with the distribution of key species.  It illustrates that the whole northern Bering Sea is the storehouse that supports the way of life for Indigenous peoples of the region. The Northern Bering Sea: Our Way of Life is a project of the Bering Sea Elders Group, with support from Alaska Marine Conservation Council. Initially produced in print and as an electronic PDF file, NSIDC and ELOKA staff designed a website archiving the content and preserving it in an interactive way online.
