Conference paper


To the gratification of America’s Arctic citizens, the Inuit, the development of a deliberate American Arctic regional policy is receiving increased attention. We Inuit have advocated the necessity for broad Arctic policy development since the Prudhoe Bay oil discovery in 1968. The production of this volume at last provides a forum for direct Inuit contribution to national discussion of Arctic policy development. We must acknowledge the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution for providing us this opportunity.
