In a very different sort of applied research, one of the authors is hired by the National Park Service to study Tlingit Indian and white fishermen in a remote area of Glacier Bay National Park. Both groups are suspicious of the research and some individuals are hostile, fearing the Park Service intends to impose new regulations. Shunned at first, the anthropologist later is recruited by the Tlingit to become an “expert witness” and advocate for their rights in Alaska’s Supreme Court.

Keywords:   Applied Anthropology, Alaska, Tlingit Indians, Competitive Commercial Fishing, Advocacy Anthropology
