        Richard Glenn: Iñupiaq Geologist

        In this interactive resource featuring audio, images, and text adapted from Raven Radio/KCAW, meet Richard Glenn, an Alaska Native geologist. Glenn explains that he is first an Iñupiaq Eskimo and whale hunter. He studied Western science as a way to inform himself and his people about how the oil companies perceived the resources of the North Slope. He then suggests that Alaska Native ways of knowing and Western science can be likened to two flashlights shining down the same path.

        This media asset was adapted from Common Knowledge: "Geologist" by Raven Radio/KCAW.
