Abstract
From Page 1: "Co-management or cooperative management have been frequent buzzwords on the Alaskan wildlife management scene and in the Alaksa Native community for several years now. The concept is described in conferences and literature of Alaska Native and rural advocacy groups and typically the same models are presented as the standard approach to achieving more power and influence for Native villages and organizations (Rural Alaska Community Action Program 1995; Native American Fish & Wildlife Society 1998). Three major models are usually presented: the 'marine mammal commission' model exemplified by the Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission; the 'goose plan' model demonstrated by the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta Goose Management Plan and the more recent 'tribal village self-determination and traditional knowledge' model, advocated by various individual and regional tribal groups."
