Ernest Pokiak’s father, Bertram Pokiak, was one of the influential Inuvialuit voices that worked to negotiate the Inuvialuit Final Agreement (IFA). Ernest’s life has been framed by that agreement, which lays out the structures that govern wildlife management planning on Yukon’s North Slope. He was there while his father worked to create it, he saw it signed, and he now serves as a member of the Wildlife Management Advisory council North Slope. In this podcast he talks about the years leading up to the IFA, and what it means for WMAC(NS) now.
