Eklutna

CRC LogoIn partnership with the Native village of Eklutna, the CRC has developed an innovative geodatabase approach to representing relationship to place using the indigenous knowledge of the Denai’na Eklutna people. Place-based—or indigenous—communities, in which multiple generations have a long-standing connection to the landscape, possess a very close, deep, and intricate relationship to places and times around them. While GIS databases have been adopted by indigenous communities for a multitude of applications, these invariably use conventional approaches for representing phenomena of interest. In partnership with Indigenous Denai’na of Eklutna, Alaska, we have developed a geodatabase approach for representing relationships between people and place that attempts to do so from a local worldview.
