Title: Social indicators study of Alaskan Coastal Villages. 4. Postspill key informant summaries. Schedule C. Communities, part 1 (cordova, tatitlek, valdez). Social and economic studies. Final report

Abstract

In the initial phase of the Social Indicators Study, Schedule A and B datasets were established. Because of the Exxon Valdez oil spill, Minerals Management Service moved as fast as possible to secure funds to study the affected villages. The research design was modified and inquiries expanded to determine the consequences of the spill to the residents of the affected villages. The report (Schedule C (Part 1)) presents ethnographic summaries of selected communities in the spill zone. The study area consists of the communities of Cordova, Tatitlek, and Valdez. The introduction describes the political-economic contexts of the State and the regions in which Schedule C communities are located. The KI summaries that follow the introduction are descriptive ethnographies of spill-affected villages that provide substantial detail.

  • The focus of this report is on Alaska Natives--Inupiaq and Yupik Eskimos, Athabascans, and Aleuts--for two important reasons: (1) Alaska Natives are numerically dominant populations in rural areas closest to potential offshore oil development sites and (2) their economic adjustments are most vulnerable to potential impacts from such development. This report is divided into Schedules A, B, and C. Comprising Schedules A and B are the study areas originally identified by Minerals Management Service for this study (North Slope, NANA, Bering Straits, Calista, Bristol Bay, Aleutian-Pribilof Islands, and Kodiak regions). Schedule C is comprised of communities that were added subsequentmore » to the Exxon Valdez oil spill of 1989 in the Prince William Sound and Cook Inlet regions. One aim of this study was to document the attitudes and belief systems or ideologies about quality of life and well-being in the coastal, rural portions of Alaska.« less

  • In 1986, the Minerals Management Service awarded this contract to analyze contemporary life in 30 Alaskan villages located among seven ANCSA Native regions from Kodiak Island to the North Slope. The MMS requested that special attention be paid to distinguishing differences among ANCSA regions, between Native and non-Native residents, between villages that possessed well-developed infrastructures and superstructures and those that did not, and between OCWS oil-related activities and other activities that might affect village or organizations and life within villages. The contract called for developing two separate Social Indicator systems that periodically can be used to monitor the social conditionsmore » of Alaska's rural communities.« less
