Inuvialuit ecological knowledge of king eiders, Pacific common eiders, black brant, and some other birds near Holman and Sachs Harbour, Northwest Territories



Inuvialuit ecological knowledge of king eiders, Pacific common eiders, black brant, and some other birds near Holman and Sachs Harbour, Northwest Territories



Canadian Wildlife Service Occasional Paper ; 112: 44-57



In 1992-1993, interviews of Inuvialuit hunters from Holman on Victoria Island and Sachs Harbour on Banks Island, Northwest Territories, were used to document local knowledge of King Eiders Somateria spectabilis, the Pacific race of Common Eider Somateria mollissima v-nigra, Black Brant Branta bernicla nigricans, Lesser Snow Geese Anser caerulescens caerulescens, and some other common species of birds. Interview topics included spring migration, nesting, moulting, brood rearing, fall migration, subsistence hunting, and general ecology. Much of the information provided by hunters was geographic in nature and is best represented on maps. From a waterfowl management perspective, information gathered on (1) the migration paths and nesting areas used by eiders near Holman and (2) the areas used by nesting Black Brant and migrating Lesser Snow Geese near Sachs Harbour is especially useful.
