dc.description.abstractFrom the 1860s into the early twentieth century the Athapaskans of the northern Yukon experienced great changes in the demography and economy of their traditional territory and consequently also saw changes in their uses of wildlife and their material culture, which heretofore had been largely based on the products of their local environment. This thesis addresses the impact of the fur trade and other modes of exchange on the harvesting practices and uses of wildlife by the Han and Gwich'in First Nations of the northern Yukon between 1860 and 1910. Analyzed here are the tensions that occurred between subsistence and commodified uses of wildlife by the First Nations. This includes the efforts on the part of fur traders to commodify the region's wildlife, the related changes to indigenous material culture, and conflicts of authorities over the harvesting and management of wildlife.
