The CAP Portal is a searchable collection of reports and documents written by Tribes, Arctic communities, and Indigenous organizations. The NNA-CO is providing this collection to facilitate awareness of Arctic Peoples’ priorities and values, which may serve to inform Arctic research planning and meaningful engagement. Use of this resource should not replace community engagement but rather supplement existing strategies for engagement.
Use the search bar to search by keywords or browse by theme. For example, if your work is on sea ice and you'd like to see what Tribes or Indigenous organizations have written about this topic, you can select "Water" in the dropdown menu.
Inclusion of and respect for Indigenous knowledge, values, and priorities are vital to ensuring success and longevity in Arctic research. While the CAP Portal is facilitating access, the ownership of the documents in this collection remains with the Arctic communities and Indigenous organizations who created and authored them.
There are related collections elsewhere, maintained by other organizations working in the Arctic. Specifically, the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) maintains an extensive collection of resources related to Conducting Research with Northern Communities.
Below are key topics you may expect to find in each of the designated themes.
This list does not include all topics but is intended to serve as a general guideline of what topics to expect in each theme.
