Yup'ik Environmental Knowledge Project

Over the last ten years the Calista Elders Council (CEC) staff has worked with elders from Bering Sea coastal communities to document Yup'ik place names. Elders have been eager to teach young people their rich history and named places of their homeland, including camp and settlement sites, rivers, sloughs, rocks, ponds, even sandbars and underwater channels. More than 3,000 names have been identified. Also included are Yup'ik views on the importance of place names, the land, values, and language.
