EDIBLE AND USEFUL PLANTS OF SCAMMON BAY, ALASKA

 

 

EDIBLE AND USEFUL PLANTS OF SCAMMON BAY, ALASKA

 

In doing this project, the Upward Bound Program in Keggatmiut High School here in Scammon Bay had one important central idea in mind, that is, to involve students both in their natural environment and in their village community through a project that would be of practical use to them.

In realizing this goal, our game plan included several objectives, among them:

  1. learning about some of the plants that were and are edible and useful to the people of Scammon Bay;
  2. communicating with Scammon Bay elders in Yupik about these plants to learn their uses, etc.;
  3. in communicating with the elders, to gain practice with their Yupik language and also to learn some new words and names that were and are important to the people of Scammon Bay;
  4. learning how to interview with and without tape recorders;
  5. gaining experience in transcribing and translating from Yupik to English;
  6. learning about plant taxonomies;
  7. learning how to put this information together in a form that could also benefit others who may be curious;
  8. providing a written product for people to reference in the future when this plant knowledge will again be imperative to have.

We hope those who read this product may benefit as much as we have from our hard work.
