Description

A Yupiaq Worldview: A Pathway to Ecology and Spirit looks at the education of the Yupik, focusing on the Akiak and the Yupiit nations, Yupiaq science, technology, and survival, and education and science in a Yupiaq school. A. Oscar Kawagley follows both memories of his Yupiaq grandmother, who raised him with the stories of the Bear Woman and respectful knowledge of the reciprocity of nature, and his own education in science as it is taught in Western schools. Kawagley is a man who hears Elders' voices in Alaska and knows how to look for the weather and to use the land and its creatures with the most delicate care. In a call to unite the two parts of his own and modern Yupiaq history, Kawagley proposes a way of teaching that incorporates all ways of knowing available in Yupiaq and Western science.
