This is a proposal for a qualitative research project which tests the hypothesis that there is a relationship between the ancient Haida Flood history and the forty petroglyphs/artifacts located on Copper Mountain. Most of the petroglyphs are located on tidelands—the point where the land, sea and atmosphere interact is sacred and life-giving. The history at this site is Alaska’s most ancient record and is in danger of being lost for all time. This will be the first scholarly effort by, for, and of Native people which uses both traditional science and western science to restore and renew ancient knowledge for today’s critical policy choices.
