        An Alaska Native Community Helps Seals

        In this video segment from First Alaskans Institute, learn about northern fur seals (laaqudan), their importance to the Alaska Native diet, and how the community of St. Paul Island participates in their conservation and protection. Explore some of the human-produced hazards that affect the seals and observe how students act as stewards by cleaning up plastic and nets from beaches. Discover how Islanders are integrating old and new ways of knowing, such as in their crafts and in careers in ecotourism and research.

        This media asset is from "The Next Wave is Native" by First Alaskans Institute .
