The Local Knowledge, Traditional Knowledge, and Subsistence (LKTKS) Action Module was initiated by the Council in December 2018, and the Taskforce was formed after a solicitation for nominations in October 2019. The goal of this Action Module is to develop protocols for using LK and TK in management, and to understand the impacts of Council decisions on subsistence resources, users, and practices. More specifically, this Action Module aims to provide a roadmap for operationalizing LK and TK (potentially through processes like Co-Production of Knowledge) in the short- to long-term, as well as to formulate methods for assessing the likelihood a given Council action may affect subsistence resources, the ability of users to access those resources, or impact subsistence practices. Outcomes are expected to inform where and how these types of knowledge and information should or could consistently enter Council processes. For more information, please contact Kate Haapala by email or at (907) 271-2811.
