Native peoples in Alaska have usually been the subjects of research rather than the ones responsible for conducting it. However, the roles of Alaska Natives in research is changing as an outgrowth of IPY-related initiatives to develop new programs aimed at recruiting and preparing Native scholars in all academic fields who can take on leadership roles and bring an Indigenous perspective to the research arenas at the local, state, national and international levels. A new PhD in Indigenous Studies has been developed at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, as well as the development of an Indigenous PhD Network associated with the University of The Arctic.
