Overview

Bear inflicted injuries, deaths or life threatening encounters that occurred within the last century on the Kodiak Archipelago were collected. Frequency of human-bear conflicts were compared in sample populations from five bear harvest subunits using a Kruskal-Wallis test with four levels: whether encounter victims were hunting in a village; not hunting in a village; hunting outside of the village areas; or not hunting outside of the village areas. There was a significant difference (p <.05) in bear inflicted frequency for hunters outside of the village vicinity compared to any other level. Five Kodiak Native villages were visited to determine how the village residents avoid harm from brown bears. A variety of methods were used by villagers, thus demonstrating that empirical avoidance techniques were passed orally and demonstratively from one generation to the next providing a collective of traits to allow existence between human and bear populations.
