A working group was convened in late May, 2019, for the purpose of developing guidance to North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) and Alaska Sea Grant (ASG) to encourage and support outreach by researchers to Alaska’s K-12 Indigenous students in culturally responsive ways. The impetus for the working group was a disconnect we perceived between an increasing emphasis on inclusion of Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) and more broadly of Indigenous Knowledge (IK) as a means to “co-produce knowledge” alongside western science methods that hasn’t been carried over into culturally responsive outreach and engagement activities implemented in Alaska schools with Indigenous students. This document is the result of the working group and includes recommendations.
