Study of Sharing Networks to Assess the Vulnerabilities of Local Communities to Oil and Gas Development Impacts in Arctic Alaska (AK-05-04a)

Study the subsistence food resource distribution and consumption patterns for Wainwright, Pt. Lay, and Venetie. This study will assess the vulnerabilities of these communities to proposed development through the use of social distribution network, the way in which the networks change.

Explore, quantify, and document the social dynamics and significant changes of subsistence resource distribution and consumption for residents of selected coastal communities of the Beaufort Sea and Chukchi Sea. Quantify (through baseline and trend data) and explain (through ethnographic fieldwork) any identifiable changes in the social distribution of subsistence resources over time and geographic space. • Evaluate from the empirical research the need for further research by assessing whether any documented changes in subsistence activities might feasibly produce substantial changes in the dietary behaviors and health status of identifiable Native groups (such as elders, single women, children, adolescent males, unskilled hunters, etc.).
