Record #180776:

A tundra of sickness: the uneasy relationship between toxic waste, TEK, and cultural survival / Joslyn Cassady.

Title: A tundra of sickness: the uneasy relationship between toxic waste, TEK, and cultural survival / Joslyn Cassady.
Author(s): Cassady, Joslyn.
Date: 2007.
In: Arctic Anthropology. (2007.), Vol. 44(1) (2007)
Abstract: Explores environmental, social and moral uncertainties prompted by discovery of toxic waste in Arctic Alaska. Challenges anthropological claims regarding extent to which traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) will empower local communities and foster self-determination, and argues that TEK has been conceived in such restrictive terms that it misrepresents dynamic, emerging, and contradictory responses to toxic waste in Arctic today.
